Our Mission

“As Clients Prosper, We Prosper™. Our mission is to provide contractors, large and small, with the resources necessary to intelligently manage and comply with government contracting requirements while allowing the contractor to make astute clear business decisions that address the client’s own mission and prosperity.

This is only possible by communicating compliance and accounting information clearly and accurately. Compliance and accounting information is worthless if it is not understood by the business decision makers and business employees: each responsible for the business’ success and compliance.

Stephen A. Avery

After service in the Army and graduating college, Steve began work as a divisional director for a small company with government contracts. His frustration with traditional accounting reports and financial management led down a path deeper and deeper into the world of accounting and compliance. Steve took positions as Controller and Chief Financial Officer with various contractors. This led Steve to the CPA and launching his own practice specializing in government contracting accounting and compliance.

Steve enjoys over twenty-five years’ experience in contractor compliance, tax, managerial accounting, and financial management with businesses, large and small across the United States. His practice specializes in government contracting.

Steve served two terms as Treasurer of the local National Contract Management Association (NCMA).

Steve is the past president of the Albuquerque Chapter of the New Mexico Society of Certified Public Accountants and served two terms on the state’s CPA society’s Board of Directors.
