Survival Guide for a USAID-Incurred Cost Audit Performed by a Commercial Accounting Firm

Slide Deck


In the last few years the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) has been backlogged in completing incurred cost audits. As a result, USAID has utilized private accounting firms to perform their annual incurred cost audits. Incurred cost audits can be tedious and time-consuming. Understanding the process, where problems commonly occur, and proven approaches for working with the auditor will help your company survive the audit.

Join Gelman, Rosenberg & Freedman CPAs and Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP for an in-depth discussion of the trials USAID government contractors endure while working with the auditor. You will receive tips and best practices to make your next USAID-incurred cost audit less complicated and more streamlined.


  • General issues that occur during the audit cycle including the entrance conference, field work, initial findings, exit conference and draft audit report
  • Common communication issues with the auditor
  • Timeline and common roadblocks
  • Overview of the audit resolution process
  • The contracting officer’s decision and USAID’s appeal process
