Government Contracting

To conduct business with governmental agencies, government contractors must deal with a complex and changing array of regulations and requirements.

Through our Government Contracting Practice, CohnReznick helps contractors comply with a multitude of government regulations while providing advice to help grow their businesses.

Our government contracting practice professionals understand the intricacies of the Defense Contract Audit Agency, Federal Acquisition Regulations, Cost Accounting Standards, and other state and federal regulations that impact government contractors. We serve contractors in industries ranging from construction and real estate to security and janitorial services. We also understand the unique requirements of special business status types such as Alaskan native corporations, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, and 8(a), minority and woman-owned businesses.

Our services include:

  • Audits, reviews, compilations: We can conduct financial statement audits, reviews and compilations, and audits in accordance with U.S. government auditing standards, including OMB A-133 (Yellow Book) and DOE316 audits

We assist government contractors in areas that include indirect rate analysis and structure, multi-tiered rate structure and review, provisional rate/billing rate development, and GSA schedule consulting

We provide a comprehensive array of advisory services ranging from trust and estate planning to preparing for a merger or acquisition
