Protecting Your Bottom Line Through Effective Federal Government Contract Compliance and Management Consulting.
Many contractors are now finding that the US federal government has targeted their company for a contract compliance audit through DCMA. In other situations IG investigations are launched to make sure that contractors are in legal compliance with procurement laws.
Companies then find out that procurement laws have actually changed. Furthermore, they are not in compliance with recent rules. They are now at the mercy of the government.
An example of where government contract compliance consulting can be essential to your company’s future and bottom line is the SBA’s new rules regarding small businesses and affiliation.
Having an effective contract management officer that is in tune with these new developments can be an effective way to make that your company does not fall prey to the government’s DCMA audits or internal investigations by the IG. If you are a small business contractor, or large DOD defense contractor, the compliance consultants at Watson & Associates, LLC can provide insight on how you can align your current internal policies and with the sweeping changes in federal procurement law.
