Steve Swales serves as a partner in Aronson LLC’s Government Contract Services Group, where he currently leads the systems and outsourced accounting practices. As a technical expert with an extensive government contract accounting background, he is able to go beyond basic installation and configurations to create systems strategies that make sense for his clients today and into the future.

With more than 30 years of experience, Steve specializes in government cost accounting standards and procedures, systems implementations, customized software interfaces, audit, accounting, tax, and general business and government contact consulting. He also has extensive experience with various application software, programming languages, and operating systems.

Building on his broad, real-world expertise with FAR, CAS and DCAA, Steve established Aronson’s government contracting compliance practice in 1988 and continues to perform those services today. For much of his early career at Aronson, he was also instrumental in building Aronson’s government contracting-focused audit and tax practice.  Prior to joining the firm, Steve worked as a controller for a middle market government contractor doing predominantly cost plus work.
