DCAA Compliant Timekeeping Software

DCAA Compliant Timekeeping Software

Advice from the experts

Everything needs to be tracked

Time spent on overhead tasks, bid and proposals, training, leave (paid or unpaid) and yes, even uncompensated time

Timekeeping isn't just for hourly employees

All time worked should be tracked. Both salaried and hourly employees

Correction timesheets are okay

Budgets change, mistakes are made, people forget.. that's why a documented correction process is imperative.

Audit trails are the key

With the internet, all things are possible. Anywhere. Anytime. A detailed audit trail captures it all. The time, the place as well as the details.

Just saying it doesn't make it true

Any software can claim to be DCAA compliant but we don't just say it. We guarantee it. Our experts of 20+ years will make sure!

Having been in the industry for over 25 years, there are a number of key topics that continue to come up when talking with a customer about DCAA compliant time tracking software.  One common theme I hear time and time again is  centered around managing correction timesheets and enabling someone other than an employee to update a timesheet. There are many sources on the web and an unlimited number of resources that are waiting and willing to charge you for FAR training.  Go ahead, do a little "google research" or just ask one of our many referral partners.

Is Your Company Ready?

Most likely, your answer to this question is, “I don’t know”. It's often the case that a company thinks maybe they could be ready for a DCAA audit, but has little confidence that they would pass. On the other end of the spectrum, are you a company who thinks you're definitely ready for DCAA because you have an expensive or robust accounting and/or timekeeping system?

Unfortunately, if you never had DCAA in your office before, then you probably are not ready, regardless of your systems.

Contrary to what you may have heard, you cannot “buy” a DCAA-approved accounting system. No accounting or timekeeping system has ever, or will ever, receive DCAA’s stamp of approval. As a government agency, they will not endorse a product in that manner. In addition, DCAA never “approves” your systems anyway. Instead, they test your end to end system, policies and procedures and determine if it is “adequate”. In a nutshell, they want to make sure that you walk the talk and you do it according to regulation.

How can you prepare for an Audit?

Test yourself

Internal audits (or as we call them “mock audits”) are an ideal way for you to determine where your gaps are and correct those gaps. They are also great to get you ready for an audit as practice. Having an outside party review your accounting system, timekeeping system, chart of accounts, policies and procedures, then test you on those, is the only way to ensure you are ready. Without such a test, you are walking into the battlefield blind. -  Arrowhead Solutions, LLC,
