§ 14-63.101 Audit responsibility.

The Office of Inspector General conducts or arranges for audits (i.e., examinations) of contractor's records to the extent that such audits are required or allowed by law, regulation or sound business judgement. Such audits include the conduct of periodic or requested audits of contractors as determined necessary or advisable by the Inspector General and may be influenced by such factors as the financial condition, intergrity, and reliability of the contractor; prior audit experience; adequacy of the accounting system; and the amount of unaudited claims. The audits may also include reviews of cost or price data for contractor's proposal for negotiated contracts (see FPR 1-3.809).

(c) In some contracts it may be appropriate to emphasize the scope or extent of an audit, such as (1) the use

dispostion of Government-furnished property or (2) variable or other special features of a contract (e.g., price escalation and compliance with the price warranty or price reduction clauses). In such cases, the contract clause in IPR 14-63.104 may be appropriately modified with the written concurrence of the Office of Inspector General.

$ 14-63.103 Requirements.

(a) A preaward audit of proposals shall be made as required by FPR 13.809.

(1) The preaward audit shall not be waived without proper written justification (See FPR 1-3.809(b)(1)(i)).

(2) Requests for preaward audit along with pertinent documents shall be submitted to the Office of Inspector General. Except under unusual circumstances, at least 30 days should be allowed for the review and evaluation of contractor's proposals.

(b) All awards of noncompetitive contacts which exceed $25,000 shall include the “Examination of Records" clause set forth in IPR 14-63.104.

(d) Use of the clause set forth in IPR 14-63.104 (whether or not modified) does not negate the required use of

the “Examination of Records" clause prescribed in FPR 1-3.814-2(c) or the “Audit" clause prescribed in FPR 1-3.814-2(a).

§ 14-63.104 Clause.

Insert the following clause under the conditions prescribed in IPR 1463.103(b);

EXAMINATION OF RECORDS Any Contractor receiving Federal funds agrees that the Secretary of the Interior, the Inspector General, or any of their duly authorized representatives shall, until the expiration of three years after final pay. ment under this contract or the time periods for the particular records specified in Part 1-20 of the Federal Procurement Regulations (41 CFR Part 1-20), whichever expires earlier, have access to, and the right to examine, any books, documents, papers and records of the Contractor involving transactions related to this contract or compliance with any clauses thereunder.
