Contract Management

Winning the contract is just the first step to success in GovCon. You must perform the contract while never forgetting that your future in GovCon depends exponentially on how well you perform. Past Performance scores are key to winning more contracts.

To really master GovCon, you must learn to read and interpret the FAR. The FAR contains the regulations that establish what you, as the contractor, must do. Therefore, it is important to establish a process to be fully compliant. By being compliant AND performing well you will be able to build and maintain the level of performance history necessary to win more contracts! Here’s how we help.

First we conduct a thorough review of the contract(s) in question focusing on the various terms and conditions. Most often the terms and conditions that could be problematic relate to small business regulations, contract changes requiring formal modifications, relationship management with the COR or CO, small business subcontracting plans, Representations & Certifications, Organizational Conflict of Interest mitigations, commercial contracts, and contractor responsibility. This process fully prepares you for all the expectations and responsibilities associated with your contract.
