"I would not be in business if it were not for ReliAscent. I’m a Scientist with a Small Business; no one here knows diddly about the complexities of Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) requirements; the Government requires conformance to such for contracts of $100K or more, and the DCAA-personnel are not permitted to help. I had been selected for a $1 Mil Phase 2 SBIR contract but was required to have an accounting and administrative system I could not understand. I was told by DCAA that all the Federal Accounting Regulations (FAR) were published on-line and all I had to do was read them. No one here had an extra lifetime to read and understand all that. Fortunately I found ReliAscent. They had literally decades of experience and were able to provide a completely DCAA-compliant back-office for my business so I could get back to doing what I do best, discovering new science and developing new technology.
Thanks to all the ReliAscent folks for doing a great job."
- Steve Smith, Whisker-Tough Development
"As a small business, we found ourselves in a nearly untenable situation with the DCAA on a previous contract award. Our part time accountant was not sufficiently familiar with the government's requirements for an acceptable accounting system. We found ReliAscent after significant research on outsourced service providers who could help. Thanks to the well qualified and experienced stall, we are now fully compliant with all appropriate government regulations and actually doing proactive planning to be a better supplier to the USAF."
-T. Erik Oaas, President, Positron Systems, Inc.
"As a long-time government R&D contractor I have encountered a host of perplexing situations that could have had serious negative consequences for my firm. I continuously rely on ReliAscent to deal with these situations, and throughout my almost two decades of working with ReliAscent staff they have never disappointed me or failed to find creative and extremely useful solutions to all my contracting and accounting problems. I have no hesitation in recommending ReliAscent to any high-tech firm involved in government contracting and R&D. They also provide powerful support in high-tech marketing and commercialization."

"We wanted to thank ReliAscent and Dave Donley for the generous donation of Dave’s time and expertise to our DoE grant effort and for working so closely with our CFO. Grant financials are foreign to us and we understood how difficult it is to teach under the pressure of a deadline…without your support, we would never have completed this grant. Regardless of our success or failure, your support equals hope for our company and city---something that has been in short supply here. We will continue to utilize all that you have taught us with gratitude. If you ever need assistance with a goal of your own, please let Panoramic Seismic return the favor."
- Rosalee Shipman, CEO, Panoramic Seismic LLC

I require a combination of a regular monthly service, periodic updates, and non-regular, unexpected attention. Reliascent has been able to provide all of the above in a timely and gracious manner."
- Hillary Riggs, M. Alexander Nugent
"Having no background in accounting I truly rely on their expertise. I have worked with several great people at this company. They are patient and helpful even if you make the same mistake more than once. I think I learned quite a bit from them through the years."
