Success in the government contracting world requires more than a good product or service, and more than accounting system compliance. To maintain compliance, build your business, and remain profitable, a small business must also be actively engaged in the oversight of their contracts throughout the entire process; from the formal bid/proposal to the ongoing management during your period of performance, and finally the contract close out process. This requires not only a thorough understanding of government agencies, the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), and DCAA & DCMA compliance, but also requires a small business to have expertise in the federal government’s procurement and acquisition processes (as well as each step of the contract lifecycle process).
Unfortunately, most small business government contractors and grantees lack this expertise, and hiring an in-house contract management expert is often simply not financially viable. That's where ReliAscent's outsourced government contract management consulting services come in. From contract negotiations to closeouts, modifications, requests for equitable adjustment, pricing proposals, terminations, and much more, what sets ReliAscent® apart from all other accounting firms is that we offer these important outsourced contract management and administration services all under one roof (in addition to our DCAA compliant accounting and financial & business consulting services).
Sometimes, it's helpful to think of government contract management as "playing a game." When playing a game, the most important first step to success is understanding the rules. Thinking about this from a business perspective, what questions should you be asking yourself when entering into the govcon industry, or finding yourself in the red on a contract or grant (when you should be making a profit)? These can all be traced back to whether or not you have a complete understanding of the rules, and may include questions like:
