    Here is how Price Reporter can help

    Helping you win government contract

    Government contracting industry, while potentially profitable, requires a lot more preparations and even precautions than the commercial market. Price Reporter takes the burden of preparing your government proposal from you.

    We have been supporting government contractors for decades and know the ins and outs of federal contracting. So, we can help you bypass all the difficulties and non-evident nuances that could easily ruin your potential business with the federal government. From initial registration and filing of documents to procurement officer communication, to helping with the bidding and addressing any issues that arise, and finally to the government contract award. Yes, the process isn’t easy, but the long road starts with just one step. And with our assistance you can make this long path much more straight and easy.

    Minimizing compliance issues

    Federal contracting can turn out really rewarding for your business, but only if your government contract is strictly compliant with the rules. And there are many rules to follow.

    An expert contractor consulting service will guide you through bottle-necks of government compliance starting with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and Cost Accounting Standards (CAS) to regulations of specific agencies (DFAR or NMCARS), and specific compliance regulations for defense contracts (DCAA, DCMA). Price Reporter helps government contracting companies to avoid possible TAA compliance issues, as well as incompliance resulting from a conflict of interests or the wrong pricing policy.

    Dealing with contract claims, litigation and disputes

    Even when you are sure your contract is 100% compliant to government regulations, you may still receive contract claims and disputes that require prompt and proper action from your side. In this case, you may need to hire a consulting agency to conduct an investigation, and possibly a forensic analysis, to quickly and reliably address these claims pre-court or else, litigate them.

    Examples of claims that were successfully resolved by government procurement consultants here, at Price Reporter, include FCA violations, FCPA violations, alleged GSA non-compliance, price disputes and negotiations, as well as claims regarding warranty, work schedule, lost profits, and many others.

    Audit support and assistance

    Many federal agencies (i.e. GSA) perform an in-depth audit of government contractors before awarding them. The purpose of such audits is either to make sure the contractor is reliable and trustworthy, or to initiate additional checks to make sure a contractor is still in compliance with certain regulations, for instance DCAA, DCMA, and so on.

    Price Reporter has been consulting contractors and managing audits for 16 years. We help you prepare your business for an upcoming audit, correctly address audit findings, if any, and also provide overall audit management. Through our experience, we can tell those contractors who hired consulting services rarely face any issues during or after an audit. Price Reporter’s guidance allows for effortless completion of GAO, GSA (OIG and CAV), HHS, DOL, IG audits.

    Guiding you through the entire life-cycle of the contract

    The default life cycle of your federal government contract is 5 years with up to three possible renewals. And this means you need assistance for the entire term of validity of your contract.
    As government proposal consultants, Price Reporter procurement specialists will guide you through the process of the initial proposal preparation, help you assign pricing rates for RFP and FRPR, and mediate your communications with the government contracting officer for maximum efficiency of price and schedule negotiations. Also, we can help small businesses effectively utilize the benefits of various SBA set-aside programs: 8a, WOSB, HUBZone, SDVOB, and others.

    Conclusion

    Cooperation with a government contractor consultant is largely beneficial to you, for the following considerations:
    • You don’t need to research all the complexity of federal contracting yourself
    • You save time and money
    • And while we manage your government contract, you can be doing what you really need to: take care of your business.

      Frequently Asked Questions
      What is meant by the government contract?

      a. A government contract is a legally binding agreement between a government entity and a private organization, such as a company or individual. These contracts outline the terms and conditions for the procurement of goods, services, or construction work, and typically involve payment in exchange for completion of agreed-upon tasks. Government contracts are subject to various regulations and oversight to ensure transparency, fairness, and compliance with applicable laws. They are a common way for the government to acquire goods and services needed to fulfil its obligations and serve the public.
      b. A government contract refers to an agreement between a government entity and a private individual or organization to provide goods or services. These contracts are used by government agencies to purchase supplies, equipment, or services that they need to carry out their duties. They are typically awarded through a competitive bidding process, and the winning bid is chosen based on factors such as price, quality, and delivery time. Government contracts are subject to specific laws and regulations, including the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), which establish standards for procurement processes and contract administration. These contracts are an important source of revenue for many companies and can be a way to do business with the government.

      What is an example of a government contract?

      a. An example of a GSA (General Services Administration) government contract is the Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) program. This is a program that offers a wide range of products, services, and solutions to federal agencies and their authorized customers. MAS contracts are awarded to companies that have been vetted and approved by the GSA, and they are authorized to sell their products and services to federal customers at predetermined prices and terms. The MAS program is designed to streamline the procurement process and save the government money by offering competitive pricing and contract terms. Some of the products and services offered through the MAS program include IT solutions, office supplies, janitorial services, and professional services.
      b. An example of a GSA government contract is the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) contract. This contract allows GSA to offer a wide range of products and services to other federal agencies at discounted prices, saving the government time and money. The FSS contract streamlines the procurement process and simplifies the acquisition of commonly used goods and services, such as office supplies, IT equipment, and maintenance services. The FSS contract allows companies to compete for government business and provides a platform for suppliers to showcase their products and services to a large customer base. This contract is highly beneficial for both the government and the private sector as it offers cost savings, efficient procurement processes, and improved quality of services.

Some common types of GSA contracts include Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contracts for products and services, IT Schedule 70 for information technology solutions, and Transportation and Logistics Solutions Schedule for transportation and logistics services. Other GSA contract vehicles include Professional Services Schedule for various consulting services and Federal Supply Schedules for specific products and supplies. Companies can provide everything from office supplies and janitorial services to scientific research and development services through a GSA contract.
      b. Some common types of GSA contracts include Multiple Award Schedules (MAS), Supply Schedules, Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs), and Federal Supply Schedules (FSS).
