For more than 40 years, CohnReznick has provided comprehensive services to assist government contractors with a full life cycle approach to winning and managing contracts. We ensure your financial and procurement processes are compliant, efficient, and
effective so you can focus on what matters most—profitable growth.
CohnReznick’s Full Life-Cycle Approach
Our experienced team provides the highest quality advisory, assurance, and tax services, guiding contractors in a variety of areas throughout the contract life cycle. Our team’s significant experience performing extensive contract audits on behalf of civilian agencies, and industry exposure to government contract accounting and regulatory scrutiny, allows us to provide a unique perspective to our government contract advisory services. Our government contracting expertise is comprised of a deep bench of talented advisors that pay close attention to detail and provide hands-on solutions.
In-Depth, First-Hand Experience in Government Contracting
We provide the full array of DCAA audit services as a contractor to several civilian agencies. This experience, combined with the exposure to the multitude of contractors we audit in this capacity, allows us to leverage this knowledge exclusive to our industry practice in an advisory capacity. Our services include:
Our specialized knowledge of contract matters, rate structure, and commercial/federal service mix are based on our real-world experience with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and Cost Accounting Standards (CAS) to include CAS disclosure statements and cost impact calculations.
Indirect Costs, Rates, and Pricing
Compliance with government regulations is not only nonnegotiable but required to be competitive in the marketplace. We provide compliance assistance in areas that include indirect rate analysis and structure, multi-tiered rate structure and review, provisional rate/billing rate development, proposal pricing, and executive compensation consulting.
Having an adequate business system can mean the difference between winning federal work and not being allowed to bid. We proactively address federal regulations and avoid compliance issues through services that include pre-award surveys; business system readiness assessments; audits, policy, and procedure development; and annual required training. We can help businesses attain and maintain adequacy in accounting, E\estimating, property, and purchasing systems.
Pre- and Post-Transaction Integration Services
Our transaction advisory and integration services go beyond the traditional due diligence support services with a deep industry focus. We review potential targets for government audit risk, potential claims, and compliance risk. In addition, we help on the sale side with waterfall, pipeline, and other analysis requests. Post-transaction integration services include indirect rate reengineering and restructuring for competitiveness, compliance assessment, business system and policy review, CAS disclosure statement updates/cost impact, and how and when to integrate financial data into one ERP software.
Our government contracting industry expertise is utilized by contractors and law firms to maximize cost recovery. A contract termination, or an actual or constructive change that fundamentally alters the scope of a contract, may result in financial implications for a government contractor. We cooperatively work with law firms, contractors, and in-house counsel in termination and claim calculations, bid protests, and DCAA rebuttal support.
We assist government prime contractors in successfully performing subcontractor oversight functions and advise on best practices for flowdown of contract clauses, oversight and monitoring, and subcontract audit requirements. In addition to proposal and business system audits, we also perform subcontract audits on behalf of prime contractors to enable timely closeout and cost recovery of subcontract costs.
There are many issues associated with optimizing an organization with disparate commercial and federal business interests within a single global enterprise. There are also multiple alternative approaches—each with respective advantages and disadvantages. We provide firms guidance on how to best navigate these approaches, remain compliant, and maximize the use of commercial item determinations.
Specialized Knowledge for Government Contractors
At CohnReznick, we believe that a more informed client is a more successful client. As such, we offer a variety of educational programs and information briefs to our clients. Our interactive seminars, most of which qualify for continuing professional education (CPE) credits, are valuable networking vehicles. We also issue alerts and updates to our clients to assist them with staying abreast of current business issues and industry related trends. These resources include our Government Contracting Lunch and Learn Series, industry related webinars, onsite training, and our dedicated government contracting resource center—GovCon360.com.

Reimagine your acquisition strategies with help from The NIH Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center (NITAAC). With three streamlined Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs) for information technology (IT) products, services and solutions, and both direct and assisted acquisitions, NITAAC can help agencies develop new and innovative ways to satisfy mission critical IT demands.
As an executive agent of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NITAAC meets the highest quality standards in acquisition. And, our streamlined processes and procedures assure you can quickly purchase any technology at fair and reasonable prices on one of our three GWACs:
- CIO-SP3 for IT Services/Solutions: With a $20 billion ceiling, get everything IT. Rates negotiated at the master contract level assure your agency is already starting with the most cost competitive rates. And, with competition, you can negotiate rates even lower.
- CIO-SP3 Small Business for IT Services/Solutions: Never miss your small business competition goals with direct access to multiple small businesses operating in five socio-economic categories: Small Business,8(a), Service Disabled Veteran Owned, HUBZone, and Woman Owned.
- CIO-CS for IT Commodities/Services: Purchase commercial commodities and commodity-enabling services, such as cloud solutions and platform as a service, and benefit from Government-Wide Strategic Solutions (GSS) for the lowest prices on laptops and desktops.
Using a NITAAC GWAC is like having an agency specific contract without the expense of setting it up. The scopes are broad enough to encompass any IT requirement, the ceilings are high enough to accommodate the most complex enterprise solutions, and the contracts are flexible enough to accommodate any IT need.
