Specifically developed to address current compliance and audit challenges facing Defense contractors, DCAA Americas will provide attendees with proven strategies for properly preparing for, managing and surviving a DCAA audit.

  • Maintaining books, records and documents in accordance with DCAA standards
  • Establishing effective accounting procedures and internal controls for Defense contracts
  • Monitoring and auditing compliance with internal protocols for Defense contracts
