Government grants and contracts are subject to a complex set of rules known as the Federal Acquisition Regulations, which most CPA’s are unaware of.
Jameson & Company is a nationally recognized group of CPA’s and professionals specializing in working with small business innovators who receive cost-reimbursable Federal awards. For over three decades, we’ve dedicated ourselves to this highly specialized area of accounting, making us both experienced and adept at working with agencies like:
NIH-National Institutes of Health
DOD-Department of Defense
DOE-Department of Energy
Whether your award funding stems from a SBIR/STTR Phase II, BARDA, BAA, R01, U01, R21, IDIQ, or ARPA-E, rest assured, Jameson can help. We currently work with clients in 27 states to fill the gaps between traditional and government mandated accounting rules, ensuring that their accounting systems are compliant with the Federal Acquisition Regulations in the most cost-efficient way.
We work with you in the proposal phase to develop the most appropriate indirect rates, help you set up and maintain an “acceptable accounting system”, represent you during audits to minimize the risk of surprises and negotiate with the government auditors on your behalf, and work with you to manage project profitability and preserve cash flow – allowing you to focus on building your business.
