Program Operations

Background

Many non-profit organizations today manage multiple programs, offering services from education, health, infrastructure and humanitarian aid across the globe. The need for reliable, accessible and traceable data that reconciles internal billing information with federal contracts and grants and program operations), with annual estimates of expenses is of critical importance to non-profits. Transparency and accountability are essential where goods, works, and services are purchased, contracts signed, and grants approved

Problem

By far the largest hurdle for small to midsized organizations to overcome is the requirement to provide excruciating detail about the direct, indirect and overhead expenses associated with every item billed to the government in fulfillment of specific contract awards. For-profit and non-profit international development implementing partners, like traditional government contractors, must capture all costs associated with goods and services sold to federal agencies and departments, and back up those amounts with supporting accounting records.

To kick things off, the government will require a “pre-award survey” which is designed to evaluate contractor accounting system’s ability to conduct cost-based invoicing using segregated direct and indirect costs. Solutions like QuickBooks, Peachtree, Quicken and Excel spreadsheets are not built to keep contractors compliant with these requirements.
