GAO Audits Involving DOD: Status of Efforts to Schedule and Hold Timely Entrance Conferences [open pdf - 224KB]
From the Document: "GAO's [Government Accountability Office] agency protocols govern GAO's relationships with audited entities. These protocols, coordinated with federal agencies including the Department of Defense (DOD), assist GAO in scheduling an entrance conference within 14 days of receiving notice of a new audit.1 Entrance conferences provide GAO an opportunity to communicate its audit objectives and enable agencies to assign key points of contact to support its work. In past years, DOD has experienced difficulty in meeting the protocol target for the timely facilitation of entrance conferences."
