Baker Tilly Strengthens Government Contractor Advisory Services Practice with Addition of Joseph McCaffrey

McCaffrey brings over 10 years of federal government compliance and advisory experience to one of the nation’s leading government contractor advisory practices

WASHINGTON (Feb. 13, 2018) – Leading accounting and advisory firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) is pleased to announce that Joseph McCaffrey has joined the firm as a director in its specialized government contract consulting practice.

McCaffrey has extensive knowledge of the Federal Acquisition Regulation, the Cost Accounting Standards and other rules related to contractor cost accounting, contract pricing and business system compliance. He has supported a wide range of contractors, including start-ups, not-for-profits and large multinational companies. He was previously responsible for government compliance within an international firm’s public sector business. 

“We are thrilled that Joe has joined our team,” Baker Tilly’s Government Contractor Advisory Services Team Lead Bill Bressette said. “His depth of expertise in government contracting as well as his diverse experience helping contractors in both advisory and industry roles will add tremendous value for our clients as we continue to grow our practice.”

As a director at Baker Tilly, McCaffrey will continue to guide government contractors on indirect rate strategy and organization design, business system compliance and successful government audit outcomes. McCaffrey’s wide range of experience spans helping contractors resolve complex cost accounting issues to navigating the challenges associated with selling commercial items to the government.

“Government contracting is an ever-changing industry,” McCaffrey said. “Compliance should be a core competency for any organization working with the government, but each company has a unique set of challenges to overcome, whether it’s understanding their audit risk with the Defense Contract Audit Agency, to changes in regulations, or how recent National Defense Authorization Acts may affect their business. I’m excited to help our clients identify and implement workable solutions to address the compliance risks facing their businesses.”
