The audit objective was to determine whether costs claimed by UGS for Medicare Y2K remediation were allowable and properly allocated.  Our review showed UGS improperly charged Y2K for $45,278 of compensation for supervisors working less than 100 percent on Y2K; could not support other compensation costs of $3,724; and claimed unallowable employee meal costs of $921.  We recommended UGS amend its FACP to charge supervisor compensation of $45,278 to non-Y2K Medicare activities and make a financial adjustment for the remaining $4,645.
