The Contracting Cycle Continues: Bid..Win..Perform..Bid…Be Audited..



All CCAS's applications (including LightSTORMd) are GAAP and DCAA compliant solutions that help insure that:

Your contract win is awarded without delay.
You are always ready to track, report and support, and accurately invoice project costs and expenses.

You stay ready to aggressively bid on any new or follow-on work.



CCAS Light & Capture: Compliance-Savvy Stalwarts.

The most important standards our software attempts to uphold are yours. This idea is fundamental to our work. Because our software focuses on the needs of contractors whose accounting may be subject to rules presented in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) - and enforced by the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) and other government agencies - we also make every effort to assure that your compliance with these regulations is complete and as easy and fluid as possible. So easy and fluid - and nearly transparently so - that if you didn't know what to look for, you might not even notice that it's happening.

What We Deliver…

All versions of our Light software are delivered pre-configured with a sample chart of accounts, sample customers and projects, and a sample record for all data types. A sample "Cost Structure" is supplied as well, making it possible to enter your transactions and compute indirect cost rates and prepare Incurred Cost Submissions - with a single-click, complete with supporting proofs - nearly "out-of-the-box".

Because of this, and because we provide eight hours of direct support with all permanent license purchases, your need for outside consulting services to get "up-and-running" is reduced, if not eliminated. Our field-proven sample configuration is just that…a sample: it can be used as-is or modified, or replaced, to satisfy your objectives. Should you decide to employ outside consultants, you're free to provide them with a copy of your software so they can get up-to-speed in no time at all.

The driving notion: controlled costs, maximized efficiency and results…everyone wins.

What it All Means for Contractors.

Our pricing and new licensing options make our field proven software affordable for all. Affordable enough that cost can no longer be cited as an obstacle to the full accounting compliance and instant and comprehensive financial and job cost reporting capabilities of government contractors. Our minimization of those efforts and costs usually required to get other software operational only strengthens our position. Given this - and based upon thinking consistent with that illustrated by DCAA's guidance on allowable "Airfare" costs - our software's pricing fairly challenges our competition's price "reasonableness": per the FAR, "a cost..that does not exceed that which would be incurred by a prudent person in the conduct of competitive business." …Yet, there are other considerations.

With no add-on requirements whatsoever, we offer a GAAP and DCAA compliant solution that's complete, approachable and easily managed from the start. Our license agreement won't insist that we "share" in your success, but will instead assure our software's performance to help you achieve it. And our support - whenever needed - is second to none.
