DOL and DCAA Compliance

How TSheets Makes Compliance With DCAA Timekeeping Requirements Easier

When businesses win government contracts it’s often essential for their timekeeping to be compliant with the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) or Department of Labor (DOL) regulations.

DOL- and DCAA-compliant contracts require daily time tracking, precise records with audit trails for all changes, extensive reporting, specific supervisor approvals and more, in the case of a DCAA audit.

Manual Time Entry

For a complete DCAA audit trail

The TSheets Manual Time Entry feature can help protect your business with the timekeeping, management and reporting capabilities you need to comply with the regulations. It will help you track daily labor costs on a project–by–project basis and tackle one of the most complex areas of DCAA compliance by creating a detailed audit trail.

How else does TSheets help you stay DCAA compliant?

Daily Reminders

Keep every time card up to date.

DCAA compliance requires daily time tracking by every employee and for managers to approve their hours—whether they are working on the DCAA contract or not. To make sure this happens, TSheets has added a new feature at no extra cost which sends daily email alerts to every employee to remind them to submit their hours for their manager’s approval.

Overtime Alerts

Reduce your labor costs

DCAA regulations require that you calculate labor costs on the total number of hours your employees work—even if they are on a salary. This means you need to keep a close eye on everyone’s overtime. At no extra cost you can set up automatic alerts from your TSheets account to let your administrators and employees know when your daily or weekly limits are approaching.

Audit Log

Be ready for DCAA inspections

If an employee or manager edits a time card after it has been submitted, the DCAA wants to know who made the change, when it was made, and why. TSheets’ Manual Time Card creates an uneditable audit log that provides a locked record of all the additions, deletions, approvals, and modifications that have been made to your employees’ timesheets.
