Left Brain Professionals - Robert Jones
Robert E. Jones, President

We know government contracts and accounting, and know what it takes to help your business maximize profitability while maintaining government contract compliance.

While we help businesses of all sizes, we focus on small businesses because we know what it’s like as a small business ourselves.

You won’t find any pushy salespeople, hard-nosed sales tactics, or small print in our contracts. We’re honest and straight forward to a fault.

Left Brain Professionals is a CPA firm created to help businesses who’s operations include Government Contracting.  We are available to help them not only navigate a very complex reporting process, but to succeed, prosper, and make money  through the entire process.  Winning contracts, completing contracts, right up to all the required filings and reports needed to be in compliance with DCAA and FAR guidelines.

Humorous thought.   A farmer has a book on his desk “Raising Goats for Profit”.  One of his customers asks, how are your goats?  

Farmer replies “I know how to raise goats, I just need to figure out the for profit part?”  

Same thing Left Brain Professionals can do for your Government Contracting.

Over four years ago we engaged with Left Brain Professionals, first to address specific issues that would arise occasionally and now to assist with day-to-day operations. During that time, they have helped us select and implement a mid-level financial system to replace QuickBooks, guided us to GAAP and FAR financial compliance and now regularly assist the management team with strategic matters.
