December 2, 2013 - KGS Awarded OUSD(C) Audit Readiness Solutions BPA
KGS was recently selected by the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) and Office of the Undersecretary of Defense – Comptroller (OUSD[C]) to provide Financial Improvement /Audit Readiness (FIAR) Solutions to several Defense Agencies under a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA). This work will include audit readiness support of financial statements and systems used by the Department of Defense (DoD). The DoD has committed to achieving a clean audit opinion on its financial statements by 2017 and this BPA will provide a vehicle for several of the Defense Agencies to engage KGS's expertise in meeting their own FIAR deadlines. KGS is partnered with Cotton & Company, Morgan Business Consulting, Immersion Consulting, Sage Government Consulting, St. Michaels Inc., and Creative Business Solutions on this program.
"This award represents a continued recognition of KGS's successful ability to roll up our sleeves and work with DoD partners to achieve their audit readiness objectives," said Larry Grant, President of KGS. "It comes on the heels of KGS's work to help TRICARE Contract Resource Management (CRM) achieve its third consecutive unqualified audit opinion and KGS's efforts to assist the Chemical/Biological Defense Program (CBDP) to assert Wave 2 Audit Readiness a full year ahead of schedule. KGS couldn't be more proud to be supporting our clients to achieve these prominent successes."
Currently, KGS supports audit readiness for 10 DoD reporting entities and has helped Defense Agencies achieve nine unqualified (clean) audit opinions. KGS is a solutions firm that provides the full spectrum of financial management, accounting, and professional solutions to the CBDP, the DoD, Intelligence, and Civilian Federal agencies.
