Removing DCAA Director Won't Fix the Agency's Problems

WASHINGTON - "Contractors have been on a rampage fighting new requirements being placed upon them by DCAA for the past year. Removing the Director of DCAA does not address Congressional and taxpayer concerns that this agency lacks the independence and clout necessary to serve taxpayer interests. It would be unfortunate and ironic if Congressional inquiries into the independence and strength of DCAA ultimately serves to strengthen the hand of contractors."
