Our government contracting and business development experience began in 2004 as one of Ambulatory Care Solutions’ (ACS) founders. ACS successfully won the largest contract of its kind in the country in South Bend, Indiana, and subsequently won over $80M in awards with eight more contracts in the next eight years. Humana Government Business acquired ACS in 2013. Since leaving ACS, we have been involved in proposal teams that have won over $250M in contract awards. Working as a business owner, employee of a Fortune 500 company, and consultant, ECG has over 16 years of Government Contracting Experience.
MYTH: Providing goods and services to the government means you have to wait forever to get paid.
FACT: Many government contracts are subject to the Prompt Payment Act which was enacted to ensure the federal government makes timely payments. Bills are to be paid within 30 days after receipt and acceptance of goods/services or after receipt of an invoice whichever is last. If a timely payment is not made, interest should be automatically paid.
