Providing Assistance in Tel Aviv

By DCAA Staff Writer

Katelyn Rigle, Financial Liaison Advisor for the Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP), recently traveled to Tel Aviv, Israel, to provide assistance with pre-proposal conferences, training, and guidance. During her seven-day tour, Ms. Rigle attended meetings with the buying command, Program Management Agency (PMA), and the contractor, where the PMA walked through the Statement of Work, requirements of the contractor, and engineering walkthroughs where the major weapons systems components were demonstrated.

While attending these conferences, Ms. Rigle acted as the eyes and ears of DCAA and provided financial advisory guidance to the procurement team. Together with the cognizant audit team, Ms. Rigle presented several small business training sessions to the contractor to ensure their understanding of Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) requirements, what to expect from a DCAA audit, examples of cost or price analysis, and how to properly monitor their subcontracts.

Additionally, Ms. Rigle took part in several team building activities with the procurement team, including walking tours of Caesarea, Masada, the Dead Sea, and Jerusalem. During these activities, the PMA expressed their appreciation for DCAA’s presence at the table during all aspects of the contract life cycle to ensure contracting actions stay on track and in particular, the current high visibility contract is awarded in a timely manner.
