Government Contract Services (GCS) helps businesses that contract with and participate in programs sponsored by US state and federal government entities. We help not just with matters of understanding and complying with federal and state contract/program obligations, but also with driving well-informed operational decisions to maintain competitive advantage in the market without compromising on our clients’ compliance obligations.  A key component of GCS’s services offerings is integrating and leveraging technology and data analytics throughout our processes.  We have, and are expanding, our team of digital professionals who support new analytics tool development, user-facing application support, and project-based data analytics and visualization.


The opportunity 

Our GCS team is experiencing growth, and we need talented professionals who are excited to continue that growth. Our GCS team works with industry-leading clients to develop innovative recommendations to some of the most challenging compliance risks and market opportunities that they face. Because we work with such a diverse portfolio of clients across industries, you can expect to take on a wide range of data challenges, making this a great place to develop your technical and business knowledge.


Your key responsibilities 

It’s no exaggeration to say no two projects will be alike. You’re likely to balance your time between engagement planning with other GCS members, actively analyzing complex data, and participating in GCS practice development. You’ll use your skills across the entire spectrum of contract services: allowable costs, audits, business systems, investigations, and government pricing, to name a few. It’s all about using your technical skills to creatively assess and resolve our clients’ needs and managing engagement teams to drive execution on engagements.

That means thinking critically about the value we can bring to our clients, taking initiative to research regulatory information and industry insights, and speaking up with innovative ideas that challenge the status quo.  You’ll also be collaborating with colleagues across multiple service lines, so we’ll look to you to build relationships and identify opportunities for our client to benefit from our expertise in other areas.
