Government Contracting

Industry knowledge to help you obtain and maintain government contracts.

FORVIS delivers assurance, tax, and advisory services to a multitude of government contractors.

We help government contractors adapt to industry changes, which is critical to their success in maintaining sustainability and turning a profit. We help with accounting systems, contractor purchasing & estimating systems, cybersecurity compliance, and cost accounting standards.

We collaborate with you to strengthen your processes and oversight around applicable FAR, CAS, and regulatory requirements so you can meet DCAA, DCMA, and SBA expectations.

When selling to the federal government, cost control, reporting, and documentation of all stages of the contract life cycle are critical. As compliance requirements, oversight, and cost pressures continue to increase, your company needs highly efficient operations, reasonable cost/price analyses, and robust accounting practices to succeed in this highly regulated and complicated environment.


The government contracting assurance group at FORVIS leverages in-depth government contracting industry knowledge and experience with accounting and assurance principles. Our integrated approach delves into common pitfalls, government contract compliance issues, value drivers, and overall management and profitability considerations. As a result, our teams not only understand GAAP, GAAS, and revenue recognition issues, but also build into their processes and can assess a company’s compliance with significant areas of applicable regulations required by a company’s government contract and subcontracts.
