Choose an Accounting System that Meets GovCon Compliance Standards

By March 18, 2022 No Comments

There is a whirlwind of acronyms that represent the various government agencies, regulations, standards and certifications involved in compliance and regulation for GovCons. FAR, DCAA, DCMA, FCI, CMMC, ASC, NIST, CAS – the list goes on. It can be intimidating and difficult to navigate.

GovCons are subject to audits concerning their accounting practices as well as how they address cybersecurity and the protection of government information. It is a continuous effort to monitor and review – not a once-a-year reckoning to overcome.

First-time GovCons, as well as experienced ones, can easily become overwhelmed by the reporting efforts and requirements. What’s been done in the past may not be sufficient to remain compliant today with the ever-shifting and evolving regulations.
