2020 Government Contracting Conference


The RI Society of CPAs, in partnership with the Greater Washington Society of CPAs, present the 2020 Government Contracting Conference. This year’s event is completely virtual, making it available to professionals both in industry and public accounting firms nationally for the first time.

Coming off a strong year, contractors of all types and sizes were looking ahead to continued growth and opportunity. Now, managing unallowable costs and eliminating inefficiencies remain a focus, but in a myriad of ways, the pandemic has disrupted everything. Companies are now examining strategic planning processes and budgeting/forecasting, identifying problem areas, and dealing with cash flow issues and the complications of relief programs and regulatory compliance.

By attending this conference, you will gain the latest insights on current trends and hot topics from leaders of the contracting sector. Their deep experience in this industry will help you to navigate this disruptive time and hearing the experiences and practical guidance from your peers in this community means more now than ever before. Over two days, we will offer meaningful networking opportunities and resources, as well 11 CPE credits on topics ranging from industry wide updates to CFO panels offering insight gleaned from their unique experiences. This is an event like no other, brought to you by leaders in the Federal contracting space.

Fields of Study: Accounting (Governmental), Auditing (Governmental), Business Law, Business Management & Organization, Economics & Information Technology
