SBIR Academy

Are you an SBIR Phase I awardee?

A lot of our clients have asked us, “What made you create this course?” Our response has always been the same. We created this course because we saw a problem in the industry. We recognized that the majority of Phase I government contractors we worked with didn’t fully understand everything they needed to when it comes to having an adequate accounting system that is FAR compliant and DCAA compliant. We took all the knowledge we’ve gained from our years of experience in this field and created the SBIR Academy. Your one-stop-shop course on government contract accounting training. We refer to it as our personal government contract accounting for dummies guide.
