Government Contracting Consulting

Helping government contractors navigate complexity

Experience drives government contracting success

Contracting with the government can generate healthy revenues — if businesses are prepared for the considerable complexity that comes with it.

Contractors who work with the federal government and greater public sector must navigate a web of regulatory obligations — including CMMC compliance, contract cost accounting and more — as well as requirements for federal market access, including grant compliance and GSA Schedules. Federal contracting consultants can help contractors understand and address these needs so they can focus on what they do best: running their business.

BDO offers consulting services to support government contractors both large and small. Our professionals include former government officials and industry executives, experienced auditors and longtime advisors providing insightful perspectives and experiences across a broad range of challenges and contexts. We serve clients at any stage of the contract lifecycle, from the initial pursuit of federal funds to contract closeout.

We understand the unique aspects of doing business with the federal government and the greater public sector, whether managing FAR compliance or overseeing ERP implementation. And with more than 200 professionals dedicated to recipients of federal funds and over 1,100 government contracting clients, BDO has the largest government contracting-focused consulting practice of its kind.
