Accounting System Adequacy – Best Practices for a Successful Audit

October 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Free Forvis CPE

Participants of the free live webinar will be eligible for 1 CPE credit.


Adequate accounting systems are critical to the success of most government contractors. Without one, you cannot be awarded a federal cost reimbursement contract. Now that the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) has caught up on incurred cost audits, many contractors are experiencing increased scrutiny of their business systems—especially their accounting system. On top of that, Congress has continued to demonstrate a preference to allow third-party auditors to perform some of these reviews. Regardless of who does the audit, the criteria and the expectations remain unchanged. Join FORVIS and learn more about the following topics:

  • What is an adequate accounting system?
  • Standard Form 1408 versus the DFARS accounting system criteria
  • A walk-through of each accounting system criteria
  • How to prepare for an audit and be deemed adequate
  • The benefits and consequences of adequacy and inadequacy
  • Review of business system requirements
  • How can I get my system audited?
  • Who may audit my system?
  • Current regulatory environment

Learning Objectives
