Southbridge, Mass., Sept. 25, 2019 —
DCAA’s Regional Audit and Corporate Audit Managers (RAM/CAM) met for a week at Southbridge, Mass., to receive topical updates and to focus on the future. DCAA staff updates provided the attendees the opportunity to hear firsthand about ongoing initiatives in the areas of information technology, audit policy, audit operations, and human resources. "I really appreciate the updates on the ongoing initiatives from the various Directorates, Regions and Champions. I enjoyed how the speakers made an effort to engage and involve the audience in the discussions" said Rene Morgan, Field Detachment RAM.
The attendees also had the opportunity to provide input to the future direction of the Agency. This year, DCAA will update its Strategic Plan and attendee focus groups examined the current plan's five goals and discuss ideas for future goals and initiatives, which they briefed to the DCAA Director on the final day of the conference.
The RAM/CAM conference is held annually and brings the agency’s GS-15 level and above leadership together. Given the geographical dispersion of DCAA, this once a year event is key to synchronizing the Agency.
