The government contracting rules are complex and confusing, and even the most
well-intentioned contractors can inadvertently go astray. Forward-thinking contractors
know that the best time to identify a potential problem is as early as possible.
If you are looking for a top-to-bottom government contracts compliance audit, Koprince
Law LLC can help. We provide in-depth compliance audits in a variety of critical
government contracts compliance areas, helping you identify—and correct—any
Size and Affiliation Audits
For small government contractors, few rules are as important as the SBA’s size and affiliation regulations. After all, if you no longer qualify as “small,” you can no longer win new small business set-aside contracts, and may be at risk of losing important socioeconomic designations, such 8(a) or HUBZone status.
Koprince Law LLC can help you identify and mitigate any affiliation problems by closely examining your company’s ownership, management, and contractual relations. Based on our experience with SBA size protests, SBA size appeals, and SBA size determinations, Koprince Law can review your company’s size much like the SBA would, and offer you strategies to correct any size or affiliation problems, before they result in an adverse SBA size determination.
8(a), SDVOSB, HUBZone and WOSB Audits
If you participate in the 8(a), SDVOSB, HUBZone or WOSB programs, getting certified is only the first step. Maintaining your program eligibility is just as critical. Fall out of compliance, and you could lose valuable set-aside contracts, or even be decertified.
Koprince Law can help you stay on top of your 8(a), SDVOSB, HUBZone or WOSB program obligations. We can review your company’s ongoing compliance much like the SBA or VA would, and offer you strategies to correct any problems, before they result in adverse action.
Koprince Law can also assist you in developing an internal compliance program to help ensure that you remain eligible–and have the paperwork to prove it if the government comes knocking on your door.
Service Contract Act/Davis-Bacon Act Compliance Audits
If you work on federal service or construction contracts, you may be required to pay your employees prevailing wages and fringe benefits under the provisions of the Service Contract Act or Davis-Bacon Act. Failing to pay the required wages and fringe benefits can subject you to fines, back pay, and other penalties.
Koprince Law can help you remain compliant with the complex Service Contract Act and Davis-Bacon Act rules. Our government contracts attorneys can assist you in selecting the appropriate labor categories for your employees and ensuring that your employees receive the wages and fringe benefits to which they are entitled.
Other Government Contracts Audits
The FAR, SBA regulations, Department of Labor regulations, and other rules applicable to federal contractors can often be difficult to interpret and follow, even for seasoned contractors. Koprince Law can perform internal compliance audits on many other compliance areas, such as ethics and internal controls, limitations on subcontracting, the GSA’s price reduction clause, and many others.
