If you need to be DCAA compliant, you can set features and functions that directly support DCAA requirements in addition to your policies and procedures.
Review the links in the Additional Information section at the bottom of this page. 

The seven properties described below are considered required in order to maintain DCAA compliance.

Navigate to Admin > Properties.

Enable Require Approvers To View Details

Disable Allow Self Approvals

Disable Allow End Users To Delete Timesheets

Select Enable Time Sheet Audit Trail 

Enable Require Approvals - Timesheet

Enable Require Approvals - Expense Reports

If you intend to allow managers to edit their user's time and expenses, and/or allow alternates to perform work on behalf of other users (e.g., alternate approvers), you will need to consider the various review required properties below in order to remain DCAA compliant. Enabling the following properties allows for the ability to have users do work on one another's behalf (so long as the original user reviews the work).

Alternately, you can leave the review required feature disabled and instead control which users can act on behalf of other users by limiting who can become an alternate, and remove the manager's ability to edit their user's time and expenses by considering the properties below.

For each project, settings to not allow future charges and to optionally require comments for each timesheet cell are located on the Time tab for the Project.
Note: LEAVE projects can be designated to allow future charges and are not required to be DCAA compliant.

Additional Settings

  1. An email reminder can be created (Admin > Setup > Miscellaneous > E-mail Reminders) to send to users who have reported less than the specified number of hours for a day. The link to the user’s timesheet can be included in the message as seen below.

  2. Change Reasons can be added (Admin > Setup > Time > Change Reason) to give possible reasons that a timesheet cell was modified since previous save. These reasons can be tailored for your organization’s requirements and displayed as a dropdown menu of choices the user can select from when the modification occurs.

  3. View the real-time assignment to your projects or your authorization to charge to a project in the Schedule Details report. Upon assignment to the project, the user can receive an email to be notified that he/she is authorized to start charging time to the project.

    Navigate to Reports > Dashboard > People Reports > DETAIL REPORTS > Schedule Details report.
