Successful Solutions for DCAA Compliance

Can you be 100 percent confident that your accounting system and processes are adequate for DCAA compliance? Are you sure that the data you are basing business decisions on is up to par?

Calculating incurred costs and indirect rates can be complex for government contractors. A government contractor must have a deep understanding of cost allocation methods and maintain a DCAA-compliant chart of accounts. Not only can inaccurate data undermine smart business decisions, but it could be the difference between a successful DCCA audit or a failed one.

That’s where we come in.

Our team is trained to perform an in-depth assessment of your accounting system, fiscal data, pool structures and other accounting set-up items. Upon a complete analysis, we will make recommendations for navigating complicated compliance issues, with professionals who can execute effective solutions at the ready.
