ReliAscent provides small to medium-sized businesses with the complete back office support they need to be compliant with government accounting and contract/grant requirements, and to grow their businesses through strategic financial advisory and business management skills required to succeed in the highly competitive govcon industry.  This starts from the installation of a FAR & DCAA compliant accounting system, which then needs to be maintained in compliance through outsourced monthly accounting and audit support.  This accounting and FAR compliance aspect is the first pillar in our 3 Pillar approach to government contract compliance; what we call ReliAscent's "3 Pillars of Government Contracting Success."

While this first pillar prepares businesses with the accounting systems and services they need to compete for and win many types of contracts and grants, the other two pillars are just as critical to the ongoing success and the growth of a company.  After all, success in this industry takes more than just a good product or idea, and it takes more than "just an accounting firm." In order to ensure not only on-going compliance, but profitability, and that the successes of one contract, grant, or idea can be built upon and successfully grow into new business and opportunities, small businesses need both the expert contract management support, and the strategic, highly specialized financial and business management expertise that major defense contractors have.

3 Pillars and an Accounting Firm Like No Other

What separates us from the rest of the industry? ReliAscent isn't just here to sell you software packages (and leave you to fend for yourself). We don't lock you into a system that costs tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to install, or is nearly impossible to get out of, or grow beyond.

We are also not simply a bookkeeping firm (with only one or two experienced employees). Govcon CPA and Bookkeeping firms are a dime a dozen, and generally have two models: 

1) A Bookkeeping firm with a knowldegable CPA at the head, and several (or dozens of) bookkeepers doing the work (simply following a template). 

2) A CPA Firm with overpriced personnel, charging higher rates than ReliAscent, but lacking Contract Management & CFO expertise and services.

In both cases, your business is left at a disadvantage.

At ReliAscent®, the success of our clients and all small business Federal Government contractors is our passion.  Our clients are in the business of bringing their unique ideas, solutions, services and know-how to the world; not to spend their time stuck in the back office, dealing with the headache of government compliance and accounting issues!
