ReliAscent (and our predecessors) have been in the business of helping SBIR firms install and operate compliant accounting systems for over 22 years. As most SBIR firms are aware, a Phase I award is usually a fixed price type award and since the dollar volume is relatively low, a compliant accounting system is not required during the phase I award. For the past 22 years we have encouraged Phase I winners to begin developing their accounting system in anticipation of a Phase II award that would require a compliant accounting system. There is not a government requirement to do this and thus many companies understandably chose to ignore the compliant accounting system requirement until they got to that "bridge to cross".
