If you are a DoD contractor of any size, including sub contractors to other contractors, you no doubt have already heard of the new changes to the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations (DFARS) requiring enhanced security controls over contract info. The regulations are specific and will be costly. The good news is that the cost of compliance is considered an allowable cost under Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)/Cost Accounting Standards (CAS), which means if you do things smartly the government will allow you to role the cost into what is allowable for rates you charge. More good news is that when you engage external help in complying with DFARS you can leverage the talent of people who know the most efficient way to get these things done. This can not only get you into compliance but can make you more secure and save you money.
