PVBS sponsored an eye-opening event on May 18 for fast growing government contractors on “How to Reach the Next Level” with our partners Goodman and Co. and Rutherfoord. The room was filled with executives looking for tips on how they should be modifying their behavior as they win new contracts, hire more people, and pursue bigger opportunities.
John Sweeney of Rutherfoord stressed the need to look for growing diversity in scope of work, added layers of supervision, new facilities with associated requirements, and pending mergers or acquisitions. At this point, you can respond early, focus on the total cost of risk and act to build the foundation upon which your growth will continue.
Ken Bricker at Goodman and Co. is a frequent speaker at industry events and a world-renowned expert on FAR and DCAA compliance. One of his key messages was the need to pay more attention to expanding compliance issues as companies ascend to the next level. He stressed that this knowledge needs to extend across the organization.
Paul Skurpski, PVBS VP of Sales and Marketing, noted a common thread being the need to continuously improve your people and processes.
