Join NDIA New England, the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) and distinguished industry speakers for a half-day seminar addressing accounting and other contract compliance topics for small and medium-sized government contractors.

Prior to awarding government contracts, Contracting Agencies (DoD and HHS/Civilian Agencies) often require an evaluation of the adequacy of the prospective contractor’s accounting system.   This review is generally performed during a “Pre-Award Survey,” where the contractor demonstrates their accounting system is operable and ready for implementation prior to incurring any costs on a government contract. This seminar will review the regulatory criteria for establishing an “Adequate Government Accounting System” and address common issues encountered during the Accounting System implementation phase.

Government contractors accumulate and categorized a wide range of cost information. This information is not only critical for contract compliance, but it also produces vital information used for enhanced business management. Panelists will discuss how cost information gathered for compliance can be turned into useful business tools for managerial, operational, and strategic decision making.
