“Educating the Government Contracting Community”

Policy and Program Development

Government contractors face issues in the performance of their contracts wholly unlike those faced by commercial contractors. Such issues may relate to the socioeconomic objectives sought by the government, specific labor and employment requirements, complex appropriations and funding rules, and special conflict of interest requirements – just to name a few. Potential pitfalls also exist relating to subcontracting, teaming agreements and joint ventures. In addition, unilateral or bilateral changes in the scope of government contracts can distract, and subtract, from a contractor's bottom line.

As such, doing business with the government requires in-depth knowledge of and strict compliance with a complicated web of ever-changing laws and regulations. Establishing effective training programs and internal compliance systems and protocols is not only at times contractually mandated, but it is also the first line of defense to prevent contract disputes from becoming the subject of civil or criminal investigations.

GCARL's Policy and Program Development team instruct and assist government contractors to develop and implement innovative yet cost-effective internal policies and programs. GCARL also instructs government contractors' employees to ensure they fully understand and comply with government contracting requirements. Because GCARL works to know your business and your team, we deliver tailored training programs and presentations that are interactive, innovative and instructive and also directly relevant to the specific business units within your company.

GCARL keeps government contractors focused on one mission – profitable contract performance – by developing appropriate internal policies, programs, and implementation strategies tailored for your company.
