A/E Clarity leads the series of NHI training courses on the AASHTO Audit Guide, setting a new standard for training and education on FAR compliance, related regulations, and auditing of A/E firm indirect cost rates. These courses are designed to bring A/E firms, state DOTs, CPA firms, and federal and local agencies to a common understanding of the AASHTO Audit Guide and related issues. We are developing new courses all the time, including both live and web-based courses.

A key goal at A/E Clarity is to empower A/E firms through better understanding of the rules and regulations supporting your government contracting objectives. We believe strongly that firms that understand these rules will be more successful in winning and negotiating financially successful contracts and developing long-lasting, positive relationships with state, local and federal agency clients.

Proper training for your staff is critical to managing risk. We can assist you by developing and presenting training courses tailored to your needs. Whether it’s for your executives or your accounts payable staff, we can provide the training you need to support your successful government contracting efforts.

A/E Clarity’s team of instructors are some of the leading experts in the nation on the FAR, indirect cost rate audits, government contracting, and application of the AASHTO Audit Guide. Where many firms focus on federal contracting, our team has unique experience and expertise in the needs of A/E firms specific to contracting with State DOTs and local agencies. Our instructors include current and former State DOT auditors, A/E firm executives, CPAs performing overhead audits, and government contracting consultants.
