Two government compliance experts–one with expertise in software (our own Steve Toth) and one with expertise in compliance processes–sat down to share what government contractors need to know to stay compliant with federal contract regulations. Watch the webinar and learn:
- The importance of an adequate or approved accounting system and who is subject to its requirements.
- What a pre-award accounting system audit is (Form 1408), why it sometimes occurs after you begin a contract, and how an “Accounting Plan” prepares you for it.
- What the detailed requirements of the pre-award accounting system audit are and how Dynamics SL handles each one.
- The major capabilities your system needs to capture costs (direct, indirect), record time and labor, reconcile invoicing, and fully comply with FAR, CAS, and DCAA requirements.
If you are currently a government contractor or aspire to be, you’ll want to see this easy-to-read, colorful infographic that spells out four basic keys to success in the federal market. Whether you are under DCAA or another government entity, the four keys have to do with the Rules, Tools, Controls, and Schools necessary to remain compliant with federal regulations in both one’s accounting system and cost-accounting processes.
Understand what’s required in a pre-award system review (Form 1408) and what the FAR and CAS requirements are and who is subject to them. Learn why the right software tools are so important, such as Microsoft Dynamics SL, what processes and procedures are necessary (controls), and how to get your finance department properly trained (schools). To learn more, there’s also a white paper offer that digs deeper into the topic.
