Government Contract Compliance

See more clearly, from first bid to final accounting

PwC brings a highly experienced and skilled team of strategic advisors who are passionate about public sector markets and help clients navigate them successfully. We understand the complex laws and regulatory trends unique to government awards and use our extensive experience dealing with auditors, regulators, and investigators to advise entities on the risks and opportunities of working with public sector customers, every step of the way.

How we help clients:

Regulatory Compliance

Government procurement contracts are financed by taxpayers, putting contractors under a microscope, with rules and scrutiny that are complex and all-encompassing. We use our deep understanding of these complex regulations to drive rapid identification of applicable requirements while assessing against existing business capabilities, controls, and compliance models. We provide you in-depth analysis and advice pertaining to:

  • FAR and agency supplements (e.g., DFARS, DEARS)
  • Uniform Grant Guidance (UGG)
  • Cost Accounting Standards (CAS)
  • Other Transactions (OT)
  • Federal Supply Schedules
  • Cost model design and restructuring impacts
  • DCMA, DCAA and other audits

Strategy, Operational & Financial Excellence

More companies are recognizing the attractiveness of public sector markets as a steady and untapped revenue source, further driven by the availability of new funding for government initiatives around technology modernization, infrastructure, and clean energy.

Are you looking to establish or grow your Public Sector business?

We can help you form a sales strategy aligned to your risk tolerance, while designing and implementing the infrastructure necessary (people, process, technology) to pursue and perform on Federal and State government awards.

Are you looking to invest in your Public Sector go-to-market capabilities, operations, and compliance?

Our team is prepared to help you achieve your business objectives in a manner that addresses underlying compliance requirements and cross-functional impacts by recommending fit-for-purpose models based on your Public Sector strategy.

Investigations & Disputes

Government contractors sometimes face government allegations of:

  • Fraud, waste, and abuse
  • Noncompliance with regulatory or contract requirements
  • Deficient or inappropriate activity while performing on government contracts

Our team can help you assess these allegations and advise on your strategy to respond. We support contractors and their counsel by providing litigation consulting and support related to cost allowability and allocation practices, defective pricing allegations, and government audit findings.

Deal-Related Activity

We combine financial, accounting and regulatory knowledge, with deep technical and industry experience, to provide due diligence support for companies who are buying or selling government contract business interests. Specifically, we perform:

  • Due diligence of a target’s government contracts business portfolio
  • Post-transaction integration planning and cost recovery
  • Organizational restructuring and cost recovery
