Over 30 years experience in federal con-tracting and working with contractors nationwide covering the full spectrum of pre-award and post award contract administration issues for large and small contractors alike, including some of the top 10 defense contractors, delivering ingenious solutions on risk management and revenue maximization issues like:
Setting pricing strategy and competitiveness
Customer relation enhancement
Due diligence of merger/acquisition candidates as well as their integration within an organization
Maximizing cost recovery including defending cost practices for cost allowability and cost allocability
Successfully settling contract changes and terminations at at higher than client expected values
Favorably resolving customer allegations of non-compliance
With the coming expansion in defense spending, contractors will encounter more opportunity for growth and prosperity. It will not be automatic, however. There will be conditions that contractors must be ready to manage and overcome in the four areas of:
increased regulatory requirements,
review and oversight of contractor estimating, accounting, manufacturing, and puschasing systems for compliance with DFARS requirements;

constructive contract changes and preparation of Requests for Equitable Adjustments (REA)
