Each of our projects is assigned a Project Accountant who works with the project manager to handle all aspects of the project’s accounting needs. By combining the services of accounts payable and receivable, payroll, general ledger, and insurance under one account manager, we provide cohesiveness in our approach: an individual who has a vested interest in the project outcome.

- Comply with any special project reporting requirements.

C. PROJECT CLOSEOUT:
