Summer is busy for many different reasons in the GovCon community; proposal season, approaching fourth quarter, vacations, summer Fridays, and the list continues. Even though the rest of the world seems to be “summering” it’s go-time for GovCons and things can’t be allowed to slip. Your back office needs to stay on track. If you put important tasks on the back burner, there will be an impact on your bottom line at the end of the year.
Surge support is a great way to help with managing these times during the year. Surge support can be used during busy times, large contract ramp ups (always a good problem to have), extended staff leaves and maybe just because your staff is maxed out and needs temporary support. Surge support can help in several areas; accounting, contracts, Pricing, HR, Recruiting and more.
We know your first concern about surge support is budget. We understand. Prior experience shows that surge support can be cost-effective When you consider the impact of NOT having tasks completed, the shock can be larger than simply paying for additional staff time.
Another concern may be ramp up time for surge support staff. This is where your policies and procedures come into play. If your house is in order, bringing on surge support will be easier. Even if this is not the case, the time spent to bring a new person up to speed will be worth it.
We know, asking for help can be a challenge. Reaching out to a qualified firm who knows government contracting is the best first step for surge support. Sometimes you might not even know exactly what you need, but a good firm will help you. A qualified firm will guide you in structuring tasks and identifying the most effective way to quickly ramp up staff and get the most for your money.
