The Truth Behind Truth in Negotiations Requests
Several of our clients have recently received letters from their local Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) offices requesting specific information on their government contract awards, which has raised concern because the letters do not disclose DCAA’s purpose, need or intended use of the information requested. Moreover, it is unlikely that contractors have ever seen this specific request in the past.

DCAA Audits During the COVID-19 Pandemic
DCAA is still active during this challenging “shelter in place” time but is, for the most part, auditing by email or telephone. As is certainly true of many business and Government agencies currently operating in the same manner, there are challenges and potential outcomes that may be important to think about and for which to prepare.

There are many challenges a contractor faces when moving from the commercial marketplace to the government market—such as space contractors that launch and manage satellites for communication and global positioning. We have helped many companies make this transition successfully. For example, demonstrating commercial pricing becomes difficult if the product or service the contractor is offering is close to—but not the same—product or service offered to the commercial marketplace. In these instances, we have been able to help the contract use “of a type” logic to substantiate the price offered to the government.
Increases in health care spending and life science research funding are accompanied by increases in government oversight. This additional oversight—combined with expanded rules, regulations and standards—is causing these industries to become sensitive to the need to comply with applicable regulations to avoid penalties and fines. At Capital Edge, we’ve worked with health care providers, pharmaceutical and biotech companies serving the military and research markets through programs such as Tricare, with those serving the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and Bioshield, thru the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency. We understand the specialized requirements of these agencies—and know how to position contractors to help them execute their contracts successfully.
