WeWorked and the importance of DCAA compliance for government contractors.

Weworked is a popular cloud-based time tracking and project management software used by businesses worldwide. However, for government contractors in the United States, compliance with the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) is crucial. In this article, we'll take a closer look at Weworked and explore the importance of DCAA compliance for government contractors.

Importance of DCAA Compliance for Government Contractors

The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) is responsible for auditing and ensuring that government contractors comply with government regulations, including timekeeping and labor cost reporting. DCAA compliance is essential for any business that works on government contracts, as non-compliance can result in financial penalties and even the loss of a government contract.

To be compliant with the DCAA, businesses must maintain accurate records of employee time and labor costs. This includes tracking employee hours by job code and project, ensuring that timekeeping records are signed and dated, and keeping records for at least three years.
