About DCAA:  Auditing defense contracts is unlike anything you will do or see in the financial world. Before an aircraft carrier sails out to sea for the first time or the next generation of F35s takes to the skies, we've been on board. Before a new medevac helicopter lifts off, we've seen it being made. Whether its weapons, aircraft, ships, tanks, uniforms, satellites - we conduct independent assessments to ensure our military and taxpayers get the best value for every dollar spent. Our auditors provide a unique service to our country and make a difference in the lives of Americans everywhere.  Our civilian auditors support the warfighter and protect the taxpayer which provides a deep sense of pride and career gratification.

DCAA has delegated authority by the Office of the Secretary of Defense to directly appoint qualified candidates possessing a finance, accounting, management, or actuarial science degree, or a related degree from an accredited college or university in a field of study, or equivalent experience, related to the functions of the position to be filled.
