DCAA Contract Audit Manual
The DCAA Contract Audit Manual (DCAA Manual 7640.1) is an official publication of the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA). It prescribes auditing policies and procedures and furnishes guidance in auditing techniques for personnel engaged in the performance of the DCAA mission.
All DCAA supervisory personnel should promote the study and use of the manual by their audit staffs. Further, all DCAA personnel are encouraged to submit recommendations for constructive changes or improvement to the manual.
The manual is designed to minimize the necessity of referring to other publications for technical and procedural guidance; therefore, technical supplemental guidance or instructions will not be issued by regional offices except as specifically authorized by the Director, DCAA.
