Government Contractors

As the largest buyer of goods and services in the world, the US Federal Government has created a vast marketplace that spans nearly every industry. While most of the government’s procurement rules apply uniformly to all contractors, each industry (and company) faces its own unique compliance challenges.


Baker Tilly positions government contractors in every industry for success in the federal marketplace by helping them address the unique complexities of regulatory compliance, government audits, and other contract oversight burdens. We offer industry insights and tailored approaches that help our clients “get to yes” with their government customers.

    Our solutions

    Government contractors rely on our insight — rooted in deep government and industry experience — to help them make better business decisions.  

    Our practice leaders draw from a diverse cross-section of expertise and experiences ranging from top international accounting and consulting firms to large and small government contractors spanning a variety of industries, as well as government agencies, including DCMA and DCAA.

    We have significant experience with all aspects of government contract cost accounting, financial accounting and reporting, negotiated and commercial pricing, Federal Supply Schedule contracting, government audits and investigations, contractor business systems, and other applicable regulatory compliance requirements.  

    Our industry depth and diversity allows us to provide fresh ideas and practical counseling on a wide range of cost, pricing, and compliance matters, including support in connection with audits, claims, investigations, disputes, and litigation.
