With decades of experience, KWC’s government contracting services team understands the intricacies of the federal marketplace and how to guide you through it while remaining focused on your bottom line.

Government Contractor Accounting and Auditing

Operating as a government contractor can be as challenging as it is rewarding, as companies face the added pressures of compliance with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), Cost Accounting Standards (CAS), and stringent oversight by the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA). We function as your business adviser and partner, proactively identifying key areas for improvement and implementing solutions tailored to your business that optimize cost recovery and maximize your profitability.

With KWC you can expect the responsiveness, flexibility, and personalized attention of a small accounting firm with the breadth of expertise and team support of a large firm. Our comprehensive range of services enables us to deliver the right level of assistance for you, from the complete accounting and corporate tax needs of start-ups and owners to the project-specific needs of more established entities.
