The Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Office of Acquisition and Grants (OAG) awarded Westat a $51.5 million cost-plus-fixed-fee (CPFF) contract, Contract Number SS00-05-60072, to conduct a Mental Health Treatment Study.

OAG requested we audit Westat’s direct costs claimed under Contract Number SS00-05-60072. Our audit will assist in the Agency’s close out of this CPFF contract.

The objective of this audit was to determine the allowability of Westat’s direct contract costs and apply the final Fiscal Year (FY) 2005 through 2011 negotiated indirect rates to the direct costs to compute the total costs for Contract Number SS00-05-60072.
