Dulles, Virginia, December 6, 2018--In helping government contractors plan and strategize for the upcoming fiscal year, CohnReznick and Unanet have once again partnered to conduct a government contracting industry benchmarking survey. The results of this survey have been compiled into the 2018 GAUGE Report which focuses on five major areas of contracting:

  • Government Contract Compliance- What type of DCAA audits should you be expecting in the future?
  • Accounting - What should you be expending by category as a % of revenue?
  • Utilization - How many FTEs do you have in each of your departments?
  • Growth – What is your win rate and are you bidding on the right projects?
  • Efficiencies – Are your overhead, G&A and fringe rates competitive?

With more than 1,500 contributors this year, representing a wide array of government contractors of all sizes, the 2018 Report is intended to provide valuable insider information for all size contractors. This edition is especially focused on small contractors pursuing prime contractor status.
