Use QB as accounting system. DCAA audit for accounting system has pre-requisites, want 3rd party audit to qualify for future federal bids. If QB qualifies n any guidance?

Let me address your concern, Mr28.

 

QuickBooks Online is a Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) compliant. You'll have to subscribe to a third-party app to align our software with the DCAA regulation.

 

First, you'll have to get in touch with the DCAA agency to get the compliance keys or instructions. Then, you can visit our App store to check with third-party apps that work with DCAA compliant applications.

 

If you have additional questions, please let us know. The Community is open 24/7 to help you.

Hi,
I am sorry that I am not completely clear about the response. Per your response, I need further guidance on the following:

1) Whats the contact info (email, website, etc.) to get DCAA compliance keys or instructions?
2) I am not sure about what app needs to be downloaded from the "App Store"; is there an external/additional app that will sit on top of QB for us to become DCAA compliant? If so, what is the name of that app and how much does it cost?
3) Does QuickBooks have a consultant who can help us get aligned with DCAA guidelines and issue a certificate?
4) What are the itemized costs (help from QB to align our accounting practices, any additional software/app needed, issuing a successful audit certificate, etc.)?

Thank you for the additional details, mr28.

 

We're unable to provide which third-party app you'll choose to integrate QuickBooks Online with DCAA. When you go to the App store you can search for DCAA, and there will be results of apps which is compliant with them.

 

As for your remaining questions, QuickBooks Online has a Find-a-ProAdvisor website. In which you can look for an accountant that can help you with your DCAA compliance. Here's how:

  1. Go to the Find-a-ProAdvisor website.
  2. Click Get Started.
  3. In the Find a pro window, tell us what you need to help with?, then click Next.
  4. Choose the industry or type of business you have, then click Next.
  5. Select the specific QuickBooks version you're using for your business, then click Next.
  6. Enter the specific location or address of the accountant. 
  7. undefined
  8. Click Search.

Let me know if you need additional help. I'll be right here.
