MLA was engaged by BCS in 2018 to help with financial reporting. In order to maintain its status as an ODOT approved contractor, BCS must complete a Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) report each year. The time required to assemble the necessary financial information was proving too much of a burden on Doug Briggs, the owner of BCS.
MLA principals Gary Wilkins and Bob Lynch work with BCS, as well as members of the Accounting Support Team. MLA updated the financial systems for expense categorization and payroll. The financial information could be included in the annual report with minimal work. MLA continues to maintain these systems.
BCS is an excellent example of how the MLA Business Redeemed Process works. The story of how this relationship came about and has served the needs of BCS has been captured in a series of blog posts. Or, you can download the complete story here.
