    In developing a prime contractor resolution position for a subcontract assist audit RPA, who does the ACO work with to resolve the assist audit findings?. How does the process work?.


    Answer

    It sounds like you are pretty well-versed in the area of defective pricing and familiar with a lot of the basic expectations and parties involved in the process. It appears the defective pricing situation you are dealing with occurred at the subcontract level, which adds a layer of additional complexity to your situation. In addition to the pertinent regulations (FAR, DFARS, your service supplement), be sure to familiarize yourself with the relevant guidance and policy within DCMA and/or DCAA. Although none of the aforementioned regulations, manuals, or guidance are going to give you a step-by-step set of instructions, because each case is unique, when considered altogether, it should give you enough direction and guidance to successfully handle the case in front of you.

    If you haven't already, please review the relevant guidance in the DCAA Contract Audit Manual - DCAA > Customers > Guidance > CAM - Contract Audit Manual. I'll point your attention specifically to Chapter 14, Section 116 --> (approx.) Section 119. Other Chapters and Sections of the DCAA CAM may also be helpful, but this appears to be a good place to start in terms of understanding the process when there is suspected defective pricing at the subcontractor level. I did notice that the DCAA CAM also calls out a Financial Liaison Advisor (FLA) (sounds like it is separate and distinct from the cognizant auditor) - besides the parties you mentioned in your question, that resource may also be helpful if your case has been assigned one.
