Contracts and Grants

Contract, Subcontract and Grant Administration Services

As small businesses win government contracts and grants it becomes clear that they need a constant resource for guiding them through the unique and sometimes confusing regulations and requirements. They realize that requiring their technical or office management staff to be experts at and perform government contracting tasks is an unrealistic expectation. The small business does not yet need a full time Contracts Manager however; there is a need for weekly or at least monthly interaction with a Contracts professional. Summit staff is available either virtually or physically to meet with small businesses on a regular basis to guide and keep them compliant under their contracts/grants.
