Audit Team Wins Department of Defense Financial Management Award

By DCAA Staff Writer

DCAA’s sub-office in Greenville, SC received the DoD Comptroller’s Award for Contributions to Financial Management (excluding Budget) in a virtual ceremony on July 22, 2021. Team member Jad DeLoache stated, “I am honored to receive this award. There are many excellent government teams accomplishing valuable work so it means a great deal for our team to be recognized. “

The DCAA team earned the award for their audit of a complex proposal related to the withdrawal of US forces in Afghanistan and resulting base closures. The team worked within a tight timeline to meet the needs of the customer. The result of the audit was savings of $124 million. “Our team worked diligently to fulfill the Agency’s mission of supporting the warfighter and protecting the taxpayer,” said team member Bethany Craig.

I was elated that we were able to meet the tight deadline and render a comprehensive audit with very favorable savings to the Government and taxpayer,” said Bruce Taylor, Branch Manager. “It’s really impactful to see and experience how the proposal team demonstrated our Agency TEAMIT values as they carried out their assigned and coordinated duties.”
