Consulting Services

Government Contract Associates (GCA) specializes in working with firms currently seeking or conducting business with the federal government or local and state government agencies that are increasingly subject to federal accounting and contracting regulations. Our narrow focus allows us to thoroughly master issues affecting government contractors while applying practices that have proven effective.


We have assembled a national network of consultants and attorneys whose prior positions included DCAA Auditor and Supervisor, Contracting Officer, Controller and CFO for government contractors, Proposal Manager, Corporate Counsel and Consultant with “Big 6” and national consulting firms. Our staff has excellent working relationships with government auditor and procurement personnel, a thorough understanding of how they do business, in-depth knowledge of regulations (FAR, CAS, etc.) and over 25 years of practical experience helping government contractors avoid distracting and expensive problems while helping them maximize profitability within the cost and pricing rules the government allows.

Our range of services are intended to diagnose and fix accounting problems before the government can assert a negative opinion, design the ideal method for each firm to allocate indirect costs to government projects, settle adverse government findings as quickly as possible, help create winning proposals, prepare required submittals intended to maximize recovery and educate relevant company personnel.
