In this podcast, Jenny Clark, founder and CEO of Solvability, weighs in on creating effective and compliant accounting systems for government contracts.
Who is Jenny Clark? With over 30 years of experience implementing accounting systems, Jenny found that the software for federal contractors, including Deltek GCS Premier and Costpoint, was just too expensive and overwhelming for most small businesses. To bring down the cost and improve results, she developed DCAA Compliant QuickBooks Boot Camp and her Prime Focus coaching programs. Her training series and coaching programs start with a DCAA Compliant Chart of Accounts, then explain indirect rates such as fringe, overhead and general and administrative (G&A), and finally show executives how to adapt the Solvability Rate & Pricing Model (RPM) to develop competitive bid rates.
Check out Jenny's course on Govology: "How to Price Your Billing Rates for More Profit."
