GovCon Compliance Interview Outline

GovCon ComplianceExposure –

    • newer company (prepping for audit) –
      • 5% of companies prepare (educated guess)
      • Top 5 Compliance areas (80/20 rule)
        • Depends on type of contract (SCA, GSA, …)
        • (1) multiple (sub, prime, davis bacon, SCA, GSA, unions, CBA’s, etc.) = complexity
        • (2) insurance program requirements
        • (3) How fringe allocations are administered (cash, benefit)
        • (4) tracking everything
          • transparency
          • keeping back records – audits go back years in arrears.
        • New GovCon Compliance preparation:
          • Analysis of Operations
            • Evaluate current Organization structure and tracking processes. Who is in charge of GovContracts?
          • Analysis of Contracts
            • expectations / requirements
            • improvements, efficiencies )increase profit)
          • existing contract holder with upcoming audit
          • Audit from DOL
            • Auditor comes onsite
            • Looks into every area of business (spills into commercial)
            • Lots of docs need to be provided
            • Could go back 2/3 years (sometimes 5)
            • Transparency is expected.
            • Approach
              • Dig into docs and look for problems first
              • Get help from an expert
            • Pentalties
              • Backpay adjustments = good scenario
              • Don’t be a repeat offender
              • Death sentence = 3 year ban on GovCons
            • Other Audits – revolve around risk of fringe benefit programs (lawsuits)
          • Efficiency (GovCon Compliance Prep)
            • Different systems, payroll, ERP, Logistics, CRM: rarely are all connected
            • SMB’s patch them together, large businesses pay millions for custom software development
            • AXIM – developed software to manage fringes, benefits, payroll , estimates (connect the dots) .
            • 30-35 hours a week (avg time to wards compliance) / AXIM frees up time (down to ~ 5 hours)
            • Reporting – easy generation if/when customer requests or internally.
            • Bidding smarter (compliance minded)

Revisit your operations & processes regularly. Biggest mistake is trusting the way things have always been
