Overview

Redstone GCI understands the importance of having a compliant and approved estimating system as a government contractor. Our team of experts has extensive backgrounds in estimating systems design, implementation, and audit so that you comply with regulations and DCAA audit expectations. We support small and large contractors in designing a compliant system of best practices for your size and specific needs.

Services

  • Policy and Procedures– Policies and procedures are vital for a compliant estimating system. We can review, enhance, or develop estimating new policies and procedures tailored to your company.
  • Mock Audits– To strengthen your company’s existing processes, we offer mock auditing of your system, providing you with a gap analysis and report for improvement.
  • DFARS Compliance– We provide expertise on the requirements outlined in DFARS 252.215-7002, Cost Estimating System Requirements.
  • DCAA Audit Support– Audits can be intimidating. We can act as a liaison between you and DCAA, or as a supporting member of your team, during an audit and provide much-needed support and guidance through the process.
  • Mitigating DCAA Audit Findings– When DCAA comes to audits, contractors are not always prepared. If an audit results in audit findings, we can help you respond and mitigate those findings by developing a corrective action plan that satisfies auditor expectations.
  • Implementation Assistance – Whether implementing from scratch or corrective actions discovered in a mock or DCAA audit, our experts can help your team implement necessary changes.
  • Training– Our experts will provide on-site or virtual training on estimating system requirements and auditor expectations, providing your team with the knowledge to manage and maintain the estimating system independently.
  • Internal Audit Support– Maintaining a compliant system requires internal oversight and review on a continual basis. We can serve as your internal auditor or as part of your internal audit team to provide management with perceived risks and compliance issues needing remediation on an ongoing basis.
  • System Integration – An adequate estimating system is dependent on key personnel integral to the process. We help identify, educate, and integrate your key players, including BD personnel, proposal preparation, accounting, engineering, or manufacturing, and purchasing.
  • Participation in “Color Team” Reviews – Our experts will engage in interim “Color Team” reviews of proposals to help you identify proposal weaknesses. We specialize in the review of Cost/Price narratives, BOEs, estimating techniques, pricing schedules, and consistency with accounting and estimating policies.
