DCAA forward pricing rate audits

This is session one of four in the Federal Publications Seminars (FPS) Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) Audits webinar series.

A Forward Pricing Rate Proposal (FPRP) is one of the most important outputs of a contractor’s annual budgeting and planning cycle, so they receive a lot of audit attention and scrutiny. Even though this attention occurs regularly in connection with contract pricing proposals, DCAA re-examines FPRPs as part of an overall estimating system audit.

Join Baker Tilly’s Derek Boyd and Larissa Simkovich for this one-hour webinar to discuss common forward pricing rate audit challenges and findings, strategic risk mitigation options and tactical tips and tricks to confirm a successful audit.

This session will cover the following learning objectives:

  • The purpose and intent of forward pricing rates and the focus of government audits
  • Who performs these audits, with a primary focus on the DCAA
  • Recent areas of attention and common challenges contractors face during FPRP and proposal audits
  • How estimating business system audits intersect with and are impacted from FPRP audits
  • Strategies for managing and addressing audit requests
  • Key estimating process risk areas and how to mitigate them

Register here for session two of the FPS DCAA Audits webinar series.
