MAXIMUS' Indirect Cost Rates for Fiscal Years 2000 and 2001 (Limited Distribution) (A-15-06-16018)

Our objective was to evaluate the indirect cost rates as reported in the MAXIMUS indirect cost rate proposals. MAXIMUS' Government Operations Group contains Social Security Administration (SSA) cost-reimbursement contracts. As a result, our audit focused on the indirect cost rates proposed for this organizational group. Specifically, we determined whether the costs used to develop these rates were: reasonable, allowable, and allocable in accordance with the contract terms and applicable Government acquisition regulations.

Our audit resulted in an insignificant change to the indirect cost rates of MAXIMUS for Fiscal Years 2000 and 2001. Therefore, we did not make any recommendations to SSA.
