FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | Rockville, Md., June 2, 2015 — Aronson LLC, a nationally ranked top 100 accounting and consulting firm today announced that it would offer government contracting clients a new array of packaged services designed to help them “strategize, optimize and realize” in a changing market.
Even though the federal budget is tighter and sequestration still looms overhead, contractors in the Mid-Atlantic region have continued to prosper due to an increase in the total dollars spent by the government over the past three years in Maryland, DC and Virginia. Between 2012 and 2014, government spending has increased 22 percent, from $87.6B to $107.5B, among recipient companies in the Washington metro region.
“It’s great news for local contractors that the mid-Atlantic region is still increasing its ‘piece of the pie,’ but it’s important to keep it in perspective. While the federal spend has increased, dollars are still tight,” says Lexy Kessler, lead partner of Aronson’s government contracting practice. “LPTA [lowest price technically acceptable] has wreaked havoc in the industry, but now that the worst of it is behind us, contractors have a brief opening to position themselves for the growth opportunities ahead.”
Aronson is helping clients adopt an updated “back-to-business-fundamentals” approach, taking cues from the commercial market on how to strategize, optimize and realize for success. This may include tactics such as streamlining their operations, tightening up their compliance strategies, and innovating to become more competitive. To this end, the company has introduced several new packaged service offerings that are designed to help their clients adapt to what Aronson has dubbed the “New Govconomy.”
New service packages include:
- Annual Outsourced Compliance Monitoring
- Compliance Risk Assessment
- Pre-Acquisition Preparedness and Post-Acquisition Integration
- ESOP Process Evaluation
- Tax Minimization Review
- Assurance Mid-Year Review
- Aronson Capital Partners Strategic Business Assessment
- The Aronson Touchstone Program (accounting systems implementation)
