External Peer Review Results Announced

By DCAA Staff Writer

DCAA is required to pass an external peer review every three years. The latest peer review was completed in July, 2022. Three opinions are possible for a peer review; pass, pass with deficiencies, and fail. DCAA received a rating of pass. “I feel these results reflect the professionalism and dedication of the entire DCAA workforce," stated DCAA Deputy Director Joseph Bentz. “We have an internal quality control process and having our findings validated by an independent outside organization reinforces our results.”

The external peer review determined whether DCAA’s internal quality control review system is in place and operating effectively to provide DCAA with reasonable assurance that its established policies and procedures and applicable auditing standards are being followed. The peer reviewer team examined selected audit work performed by DCAA during the fiscal year 2021. The team also examined policies and procedures, training, and conducted interviews with DCAA personnel.
