Align your internal Government contract compliance, management and auditing policies for success.
When it comes to government contract compliance and management, your success depends primarily on your ability to master these two critical areas of performance with above average audits.
If you are a federal government defense contractor performing a contract, or have been recently awarded a contract, your contract management and auditing system will determine your success and future ability to do business with the government.
Government Contract Compliance Audit Policies
Your contract compliance auditing program is equally as important because failure in either area can lead to cure notices, terminations for default, or even suspension and debarment. By investing in the development of both programs can minimize lost profits and maintain good past performance ratings for bidding on future contracts.
We accomplish this by defense contractors to:
Government Contract Management
- Conduct frequent contract compliance audits;
- Revamp and improve their contract management practices;
- Write better internal policies that comply with mandated requirements;
- Ethics policies;
- Mandatory disclosure and others.
Our federal contract management consultants work hand-in-hand with you to review, analyze, and implement programs that comply with the contract clauses, terms and conditions of the project.
A common mistake is that contractors that have both commercial and government projects simply reuse the commercial compliance programs with the federal projects. This can lead to disastrous endings. At Watson & Associates, LLC we help you:
Internal Controls and Compliance Audits
- Revamp existing government contract management systems
- Write internal contract administration policies and procedures
- Perform internal audits to prevent suspension or debarments;
- Provide consulting services to uncover potential problem areas;
- Conduct internal oversight audits for large and small business;
- Advise on best practices that preserve your rights in the event of litigation.
As legal professionals, we see companies that are facing adverse actions for failure to implement a sound government contract compliance program.
The necessity for internal controls, mandatory disclosure and ethics compliance programs are top priority for DOJ investigations. We help by implementing the requisite level of contract compliance audits to ensure your success.
