Despite what many individuals believe, the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) is not a regulatory body seeking to legislate accounting software for government contractors. The agency provides contract audits on proposals presented to the federal government and financial services for the U.S. Department of Defense.

When the DCAA performs an audit, they are determining the contractor’s compliance with the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), which is the principal set of rules in the Federal Acquisition Regulation System. This is the process through which the government purchases (or “Acquires”) goods and services.

If it is found that a contractor is not DCAA compliant, they may be excluded from future government contracts or teaming arrangements with other contractors.

DCAA compliant accounting software needs to integrate an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, an integrated computer software system used to compile, manage, and organize the information, functions, and resources of a business.

Benefits of Enterprise Resource Planning

•         Proposals will better aggregate all of the aspects of a proposal instead of just what the accountants see.

•         Totally integrated software packages.

•         Communication between departments, people, and technologies eliminates errors due to miscommunication, decreases waste, and improves productivity.

•         Company-wide accessibility and a centralization of resources.

•         This technology builds a bridge between accounting, design, and manufacturing.

•         Helps a company run more effectively.

•         Experience larger profits due to cost reductions.

•         The ideal accounting software for government contractors.
