Total time accounting (TTA) ensures government contracts are accurately charged. Kronos Workforce AutoTime™ helps satisfy TTA accounting requirements.

Total time accounting prevents the government and manufacturers from being overcharged and protects manufacturers from fines, judgments against them, and criminal charges, as well as losing government contracts because of a failed Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) audit. Manufacturers also can use TTA to balance payroll with contract work.
