Government Contracting Services

During the past decade, U.S. government spending has increased exponentially. As a result, there are unprecedented opportunities for existing and aspiring government contractors in virtually every industry. The government’s escalating use of competitive sourcing and commercial acquisition practices provides increased opportunities for the private sector to participate in federal contracting.

However, despite the government’s best intentions to simplify the contracting process, extensive rules and regulations still exist. This situation can present compliance challenges to contractors, with non-compliance resulting in negative consequences, including significant financial impact. However, regulatory compliance is manageable, and can help companies get, and stay, ahead of the competition.

The Claro Group’s Government Contract Consulting Practice is ready to help your organization tackle the necessary regulatory requirements to successfully operate and compete in this lucrative marketplace.  Our experienced professionals have extensive backgrounds in financial and cost accounting, accounting systems and internal controls, and significant experience with the practical application of the regulations.
