Government Investigations

  • Performed a cost impact analysis for an aerospace company regarding overstatements in its general and administrative (G&A) rates caused by improper recognition of research and development expenses. We evaluated the appropriateness of the G&A rates used to price government contracts and corrected the rates to be in accordance with the Cost Accounting Standards (CAS). These corrected rates were then applied to affected contracts to calculate the potential overbilling impact that was favorably settled with the government.
  • Assisted a Fortune 1000 international logistics contractor in the preparation of analyses required to negotiate with the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) in relation to disputed charges. We supported the contractor regarding a range of investigations related to major logistics contracts and procurement activities, including but not limited to, false claims and potential FCPA violations. We also performed a review of the procurement system and cost and pricing data.
  • Provided expert consultation and testimony on behalf of a Fortune 100 Air Force contractor in rebuttal to a government allegation of over $100 million of defective pricing. Issues addressed included adequacy of cost and pricing data, and the nature and extent of government reliance on such data.
