If you’ve ever worked on a standards compliance project, you know achieving and maintaining compliance with government regulations can be a painstaking chore.

While true compliance doesn’t come with the push of a button, it’s often largely dependent on the software you use.

Replicon is primarily a time-tracking application, which means we play a key role in helping our customers meet regulations and standards related to timekeeping, like GDPR and DCAA.

And as of last year, we are one of the only time tracking solutions that is FedRAMP-Moderate authorized.

FedRAMP

What is it?

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a US government program that defines security requirements that cloud service providers must follow before the government can use their service. Any cloud services that hold federal data must be FedRAMP authorized.

Who does it impact?

All companies that provide, or aim to provide, cloud services that host US federal data.

How does Replicon help you comply?

Replicon has achieved FedRAMP-Moderate Authority to Operate (ATO) certification. This certification follows FedRAMP’s ‘do once, use many times’ philosophy, meaning Replicon went through their stringent audit, so now federal agencies can use Replicon without having to undertake any further assessment.

DCAA

What is it?

DCAA stands for Defense Contract Audit Agency. Any company doing contract work for the Department of Defense needs to meet DCAA’s audit standards, that help ensure costs for government contracts are accurate and reasonable.

Among the areas they audit are employee timekeeping records. This means companies must maintain an electronic audit trail that proves employees record, and validate any changes to, their own hours, among other things.

Who does it impact?

Any company negotiating or carrying out a contract for the Department of Defense, or possibly for other government agencies DCAA works with.

How does Replicon help you comply?

Replicon’s time tracking platform helps businesses meet DCAA standards related to employee timekeeping records.


GDPR

What is it?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. It is a European Union (EU) law that helps safeguard the processing and movement of EU citizens’ personal data, to protect privacy.

For example, GDPR requires that:

  • Citizens’ must consent to processing of their data

  • Collected personal data must be anonymized

  • Citizens must be notified of breaches involving their personal data

  • Personal data must be safely handled when transferred across borders

Who does it impact?

Any companies worldwide that handle EU citizens’ personal data.

How does Replicon help you comply?

Replicon is GDPR compliance-ready, meaning we have the structure and tools that can achieve compliance, if implemented appropriately.

And don’t forget, Replicon also supports labor law compliance in a big way, through our regional pay rule templates and Compliance Dashboard.
