Government Contractors

Our CPAs are experts in the complicated rules and regulations surrounding government contracts.

A government award is an exciting, lucrative win for an organization. However, it can be a challenge to navigate the minefield of rules and regulations set by the U.S. government.

The CPAs at Gelman, Rosenberg & Freedman are experts in the industry and thrive on helping government contractors stay in compliance. We help you understand and meet codes so your business can be as competitive as possible and capitalize on future federal contracts.
