Protecting Your Bottom Line and Helping to Avoid Costly Legal Mistakes in Government Contracting Regulatory Compliance.
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 such as the FAR and DFARS. Lack of having viable corporate compliance programs often lead to fatal results.
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 management consulting can be essential to your company’s future and the bottom line is the SBA’s new rules regarding small businesses and affiliation.
Having an effective contract management process 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 DFARS and FAR 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.
