Guidance and Support for Government Contractors

Contract Management, Subcontracts and Compliance

Proper contract management is one of the most complex and vital aspects of any government contractor’s administrative responsibilities. The Federal Acquisitions Regulations (FAR) are complex and onerous. Agencies and contract types bring unique challenges. At Arrowhead, it is our job to keep your business and your government contracts working for you, not against you.

The following examples of recent work performed not only convey our value (and potential for high ROI), but the inherent fact that trying to understand and manage risk in the margins will diminish your bottom line and distract your company from the work you should be doing instead.

Compliant Purchasing is Critical

Did you know that federal regulations require you, as the prime contract holder, to use and protect the funds on your contract in the same manner as they expect the Contracting Officer to protect those funds? This is because you are spending tax payer dollars on services, goods and materials and therefore you need to be aware, and follow, federal regulations relating to procurement. Whether you are purchasing consulting services, sending a subcontract to a large business, buying commercial off the shelf hardware, or procuring a software license, you are procuring using federal dollars. If this is done incorrectly, you are putting your company at risk.

  • The proposal is in serious danger of non-compliance.
  • The proposal is in serious danger of not going out the door...
  • Your team is unsure how to approach it
