What is going to happen to the Defense Contract Audit Agency or DCAA under the new administration starting with the 2017, given that a new president has been elected? How will forward pricing policies change or will they in the next few years? Is there a backlog issue or are there discussions or plans to speed up audit times? These are some of the questions that face those working in the DCAA and other contractor agencies.
