Alexandria, VA (June 11, 2015) – Our very own Rhonda Gaydos is leading a training course at the American Conference Institute’s DCAA & DCMA Audit and Compliance Boot Camp. In July, Rhonda will lead a class focusing on “A Complete Guide on Mastering Ins and Outs of Contract Closeouts.” The session provides attending CPAs with continuing education credits and helps them to better understand the complexities of closing out contracts and meeting the strict DCAA and ACO requirements. Contract closeouts represent the final phase of a deliverable, generating the final invoices and resolving any residual billing issues. During the past several years, Rhonda has helped TATE to finalize our DoD contracts dating back to 2007. With more than twenty years of experience in government contracting, Rhonda is making her mark as an industry expert in this area.
