The Intraspect Consulting Group team has a unique combination of experience relating to small business success. This experience spans finance and accounting, tax strategy, human resources, contracts and negotiations, enterprise software development, and facilities and operations. Please read below to learn about the specific services we can provide in areas that relate to small business.
As a small business owner, whether you are contemplating doing business with, or are already providing goods or services to the federal government, you have to be aware that the government is unlike any commercial customer. This is because the government has strict rules and regulations outlining how they conduct business with you and in turn, how you conduct business with them. The Intraspect Consulting Team has over twenty years of experience with companies that have met all the criteria to successfully conduct business with the government.
This experience includes the ability to design and implement accounting and financial systems so that your company will be in compliance with the governmentís rules and regulations. This includes all aspects of accounting, time-keeping, record keeping, contractual documentation, project management and reporting and auditing. We also have been through and successfully completed numerous Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) audits.
We have a complete set of Excel models and templates which will not only help you effectively manage your business but also produce the necessary information to be compliant with requirements of government accounting. Some of these models are:
Designed for use with Intuitís QuickBooks and Deltekís various accounting systems (e.g. CostPoint, GCS Premier), the COA is focused on generating necessary reports to be compliant with the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and can be used with virtually any applications.
Designed to be applicable for single-year or multi-year, these templates allow for methodical review of costs and budgets, resulting in detailed cost element breakdown by year or month. These Excel templates also allow for input of actual data and provide existing and projected variance analysis.
Cash flow is a critical aspect of small business management. The Excel model used allows for variable periodic updating (e.g. weekly, monthly, quarterly) as well as input of existing data and forecasting for upcoming periods to identify potential cash flow issues. This includes Accounts Receivable analysis such as DSO and A/R forecasting.
These Excel templates can be used in conjunction with or independently from the P&L Models. These templates provide both summary and detail analysis of Indirect Pools (e.g. Fringe, Overhead, M&S, and G&A) both on an incurred to date basis and/or a projection to year-end basis. For the government contractor, these models are critical to management of the company and to understanding the impact to forward-pricing rate agreements and billing.
Each and every Excel template can be modified to fit your companyís specific needs, structure or organization no matter how unique the requirements of your company.Due Diligence Preparation for Acquisition, Merger and Sale
