Defective Pricing’s New Era

This event has already occurred. View Recording

Since 2015, DCAA has slowly increased its focus on Truth in Negotiations Act (TINA) audits, commonly known as post award audits or Defective Pricing. In FY 2019, DCAA and Defense Pricing and Contracting (DPC) began collaborating on ways to increase the focus of Defective Pricing across the DoD. DPC's focus is encouraging and supporting contracting officers as they negotiate defective pricing findings. DCAA has added focused training for its auditors and doubled the hours dedicated to the audits in the last fiscal year. DPC has also delegated Defective Pricing Authority to the DCMA.

Please join DHG's Steve Trautwein and Bill Walter and their guest, David Bodenheimer of Nichols Liu, as they discuss this new era and its impacts on the marketplace. Some of the topics they will address include:

  • The 5 Point test for Defective Pricing
  • DCMA's new Defective Pricing resolution team
  • Impact of transparency on Defective Pricing
  • Recent and relevant legal decisions on the topic
