GSA Schedule Audit Support

GSA has recently increased the frequency in which it performs both its mandatory Contractor Assistance Visits and OIG pre-awarded audits.

Oftentimes these events are triggered by suspected violations of GSA’s price reductions clause (GSAR 552.238-75) or when a “whistleblower” reports suspected misconduct. Unfortunately in most cases, the Contractor subject to the investigation has no idea that they have violated the regulations set forth in their GSA Schedule Contract.
