KinetX Aerospace Receives Key DCAA Determination


KinetX Aerospace today announced it has successfully met several key milestones that ensure its accounting systems meet necessary regulations and compliance for federal contracts. Through its successful completion of a Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) cost accounting system audit, KinetX Aerospace has achieved compliance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) requirements and has received the DCAA's important Adequacy determination.

The DCAA accounting system Adequacy determination indicates that the KinetX Aerospace cost accounting system is adequate for accumulating and billing costs under government contracts and is suitable for the award of prospective federal cost type contracts.

Achieving the DCAA Adequacy determination will enable KinetX Aerospace to remain compliant with the myriad of U.S. federal government cost accounting standards that are incorporated into the FAR, while seeking and maintaining important government contracts. FAR requirements and DCAA determinations work to ensure accurate government contract accounting and help to protect agencies and taxpayers against federal contract accounting fraud.

“KinetX Aerospace leadership had the vision and determination to put the necessary personnel, resources and processes in place to support the stringent FAR requirements for an accounting system and to be able to sustain an adequacy audit by the DCAA,” said Susan Dater, KinetX Aerospace chief financial officer. “The Adequacy determination will open many doors for KinetX Aerospace, and provides KinetX Aerospace another advantage in successfully competing for government contracts.”

"KinetX Aerospace is pleased to have successfully demonstrated our capabilities in complying with the requirements outlined in the FAR and in attaining the favorable accounting system determination," said R. Glenn Williamson, KinetX Aerospace president and CEO. "By obtaining this determination, KinetX Aerospace has demonstrated the ability to create and maintain consistent and compliant cost accounting practices."
