How Does your Business Partner Help you Succeed?

Posted by Tyler Link on Thu, Nov 07, 2019 @ 02:59 PM

Government contractors are understandably focused on keeping the lights on, delivering their products or services, and avoiding audits.  Similarly, the accounting departments or firms that they rely on, are solely focused on the day-to-day bookkeeping and monthly accounting—the bare minimum required to ensure compliance.

But, running a successful, growing business is more than just your deliverables, or accounting and contract compliance!  Success and growth require financial planning, strategic management of your rates, project performance monitoring, and several critical business and financial management skills that most small businesses do not possess.

Not Sure if Your Accounting System is Compliant? Consider a Mock Audit

Posted by Tyler Link on Fri, Nov 01, 2019 @ 01:52 PM

"Is my accounting system DCAA Compliant?"  Usually, small businesses don’t ask themselves this question without an external prompt.   That prompt usually comes from either the government itself or a potential new customer or job. 

...ReliAscent can perform a “mock audit” of the company’s system to verify, with a high degree of certainty, that it meets the FAR and DCAA requirements.   This can be very useful, especially if the system needs a little tweaking (the difference between passing and failing) prior to an actual DCAA audit. 

Our experts can identify problem areas and help you fix these prior to the DCAA audit, thereby mitigating the risk of failure.

Preparing a Government Contract Cost Proposal

Posted by Dave Donley on Tue, Oct 08, 2019 @ 09:54 AM

In the world of government contracting, the pricing of a proposal can be the section of the proposal taken too lightly by many bidders.  Here at ReliAscent, one of the most difficult things to see is a client “win” a proposal (Grant or Contract), that has several “losing” features built into the cost & pricing section.    At ReliAscent, our passion is helping companies that have exciting technologies or services succeed.   We can relieve the pressure of government regulations so the company can concentrate on their core expertise, providing the best chance for success.

Unfortunately, the act of preparing a cost proposal is often considered child’s play, given the complexity of the actual contract/grant work.
