Need a DCAA-Compliant Accounting System?

You Need Left Brain Professionals

As a government contractor, your accounting system is the key
to government contracts compliance and profitability

Don't risk losing contracts or costly remediation
of a noncompliant system!

To qualify for or keep a contract with
the DoD, NASA, DHS and many other federal agencies,
your accounting system MUST meet guidelines of
GSA SF 1408: Preaward Survey of Prospective Contractor Accounting System.

The right system goes beyond compliance
to help you manage your business more
efficiently and generate greater profits.

Why is Accounting System Compliance
so Important for Government Contractors?

The federal government demands that its agencies
purchase the goods and services they need at a fair and reasonable cost.

To receive a flexibly priced contract or one that includes incentive fees,
the FAR 16.301(3) requires you to maintain
an adequate accounting system for determining costs.

This covers many types of contracts, including:

COST-PLUS
INCENTIVE-FEE

COST-PLUS
AWARD-FEE

COST-PLUS
FIXED FEE

 COST
SHARING 

FIXED-PRICE
INCENTIVE FEE

FIXED PRICE WITH PROGRESS PAYMENTS

T&M WITH COST-REIMBURSABLE LINES

HYBRID CONTRACT W/ FLEXIBLY PRICED CLINs

In addition, all federal contracts exceeding the $750,000
Truthful Cost or Pricing Data (formerly Truth in Negotiations Act)
threshold require certified cost or pricing data unless an exception applies.

Your accounting system is essential to proving that your costs are
reasonable, allowable and allocable to your contract.

Failure to comply with accounting standards carries severe penalties,
which can include suspension of payments and ineligibility for future government contracts!
