ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) on the audit quality problems at the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) and challenges faced by the Department of Defense (DOD) on continuing contract management. The study also discusses the corrective actions initiated by DCAA and DOD in order to deal with these challenges. GAO recommends the elimination of production metrics and implementation of new metrics designed for the achievement of quality audits.
