    Are you a small business owner who has government contracts and needs bookkeeping or accounting services? If so, I can help! 🙋🏻‍♀️ As a former DCAA auditor for over 13 years, I know there’s a steep learning curve when it comes to government contract accounting. That’s why I’m focused on helping you understand the unique requirements you’re faced with and manage your accounting system. That way, you can stay out of trouble, maximize cost recovery, and focus on your core mission. In addition to the standard bookkeeping/accounting tasks, I can help you: ☑️ Make sure your QuickBooks Desktop or QuickBooks Online accounting system is FAR and DCAA compliant, so you meet all the SF 1408 criteria and are always audit-ready. ☑️ Calculate and monitor your indirect cost rates to accurately price new and follow-on contracts for maximized profit. ☑️ Complete your annual final indirect cost rate proposal/incurred cost submission so you can be confident it’s adequate and on time. ☑️ Design or improve and document your policies and procedures (especially the uber-critical accounting policy manual and timekeeping policy) to enhance internal control. ☑️ Prepare for a DCAA audit so you know what to expect and make the process less like walking the plank and more like a walk in the park. ☑️ And so much more to grow and protect your business! More About Me 📖 I read the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) for fun. It’s not the only thing I read for fun, but it helps me help you master government contract accounting. 🫶 I love learning and have amassed a collection of certifications that I’ve put to good use throughout my career, including Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in California and Texas, Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), and Certified Government Auditing Professional (CGAP). 🗣 No project is too big or too small for me. My mission is to share my knowledge and be accessible to small business government contractors in any way I can. If you want to worry less about the rules and regulations of government contract accounting and more about achieving your business goals, then we should definitely talk. Contact me today to discuss your specific needs and see if we’re a good fit to work together.
