She has worked with several companies to implement or re-implement Costpoint, improve government accounting processes and perform all bookkeeping requirements. For one client, which specialized in aircraft maintenance and assisting the military with aviation practice scenarios, in Newport News, VA, Pamela assisted the company with a complete Costpoint re-implementation and then assisted the company with the new government requirements associated with becoming a CAS covered contractor.

As part of this process it has been necessary for Pamela to not only design and configure the system, but also educate the end users on the government compliance aspects of their functions.
