“The McKelvey Group has been an invaluable source of expertise and leadership since our earliest beginnings. In addition to being a constant amidst our changing needs, The McKelvey Group has always given us larger industry insight and ways we can constantly improve and innovate from within as opposed to doing what we have always done. This has been instrumental in the enormous growth and success we have achieved in our years of partnership together.”
Jack Harrington, CEO, Research Innovations
“For more than a decade, TMG has been by our side as a trusted partner and expert. The growth-enabling advisory expertise, comprehensive accounting support, and knowledge their team delivered were critical drivers of our quick success. With accounting no longer a daily concern, our leadership team can focus on our company growth goals, and fully leave the accounting to TMG!”
Steven Castellano, Vice President, Votenet DBA eBallot
"With The McKelvey Group, we successfully passed our audit and have since fully-outsourced our accounting operations to their team. The established accounting procedures have been accepted over the years by many government agencies”
Robert Graybill, CEO, Nimbis Services
“The McKelvey Group established compliant accounting procedures and provided dependable, daily accounting support for our active non-profit organization. Their ability to carry the load allowed us to focus on our mission to do what we do best. I highly recommend TMG to any organization looking to outsource their accounting operations.”
John Thompson, Executive Director, National Animal Care & Control Association
"After more than a year of neglect, we were under pressure to get our books current to meet tax deadlines. TMG quickly exceeded our expectations. HELL YES!!! I love their work!"
Patrick “Sarge” Avon, Owner, Sarge Athletics
“I really was skeptical that an outside firm could understand our nuances and navigate all of the unstructured work we have to do. I was wrong.”
GAAP Compliant, Tailored to Your Needs
Most managers in small and mid-sized companies struggle with spending too much time on accounting administration and not enough on growing their business. Our team has helped businesses of all sizes, in various industries with their accounting operations. Our tailored solutions range from basic advisory services on streamlining finance and accounting processes to fully outsourcing these functions.
Our team approach eliminates the potential for a single point of failure. All clients have a primary F&A lead based on the scope of work, a backup F&A professional, and reach-back access to all TMG F&A personnel.
Whether you have an existing bookkeeper simply seeking an external assessment of your financials, or are looking to outsource part or all of your accounting operations, our team of experts can help get your books closed more effectively while ensuring GAAP compliance and all other regulatory requirements.
FAR & CAS Compliant, Tailored to Your Needs
Accounting in Government contracting has strict regulations that far exceed those of GAAP. Government contractors need to have policies and procedures in place to ensure FAR, Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA), and Cost Accounting Standards (CAS) compliance. Without an adequate accounting system, a business severely limits its opportunities and it risks receiving poor performance reviews, rejected invoices, Government claims, contract terminations, or even fraud charges. In addition, contractors without adequate accounting systems risk a lack of access to win new work, key proposal teams, as well as limiting the procurement they can pursue.
Our team has years of Federal government contractor accounting experience. Whether your company needs a review of your existing processes to ensure accuracy and compliance with the FAR and CAS, or you need to completely restructure your accounting system in preparation for a DCAA audit, our team can help. In addition to our general accounting support, our services for government contractors include chart of accounts development to ensure proper segregation of direct from indirect costs, labor distributions, indirect rate calculations, job costing, provisional rate development, incurred cost submissions, policies and procedures manuals, and mock audits. We offer customized solutions to meet your company’s needs so that you can focus on optimizing performance on your existing contracts and winning new bids.
Packaged Solution, Auditable Day 1
For small Government contractors, spending the time and money on building a fully compliant accounting system is usually a low priority. Unfortunately, ALL contractors are required to have a fully compliant system as soon as they have their first award. This is a certification every contractor makes in every proposal they respond to, and every invoice they submit. And eventually, the Government will ask the contractor to prove it via an audit. An audit can be initiated at any time, with little notice. No accounting system can be made compliant after an audit is initiated. So, every contractor must be proactive. But once again, the cost in dollars, time, and personnel can be daunting for small contractors. TMG has the solution.
Any Government contractor can purchase TMG’s GovAcct© service and be fully compliant within 30 days. Managers can then keep their focus entirely set on contract acquisition and operations. And when a contractor grows large enough to bring this solution in house, all documentation, transactions, systems, and historical compliance will be transferred.
