Today’s Government Contracting market is more competitive than ever. Customers are demanding more efficient delivery of contracted services, pushing R&D costs to contractors and demanding increasingly competitive pricing. The most effective companies in the market drive efficiency based on market and price demands, balanced against growth investments. We support executives with detailed financial and operational analysis, customized benchmark data, cross-functional expertise and a proven methodology for generating results and implementing change. Our work in this area is tied to M&A integration activities or executed as stand-alone projects in support of business turnarounds, restructuring actions, or wrap rate and cost competitiveness imperatives.
