DoD Holding Public Meeting on Proposed Business Systems Compliance Rule

In connection with today’s proposed DFARS rule, Business Systems Compliance, the Department of Defense is holding a public meeting.

As explained in yesterday’s blog post, the DFARS Case 2012-D042 proposed rule would allow a contractor to demonstrate compliance with DFARS system criteria for accounting systems, estimating systems, and material management and accounting systems, through self-evaluations and audits by independent Certified Public Accountants selected by the contractor.

The meeting will be held at the Mark Center Auditorium, 4800 Mark Center Drive, in Alexandria, Virginia, on August 18, 2014, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

If you wish to attend,  register by August 11, 2014, to ensure adequate room accommodations and to facilitate entry into the building. DoD is also allowing attendees to submit comments and make a ten minute presentation.

For more information, see the text of the proposed rule and the registration web page.
