Nperspective, LLC - Speaker / Sponsor

Wayne is and Ex DCAA Auditor and has over 35 years experience. He concentrates on helping
government contractors update their accounting, job cost, and estimating systems to produce more
accurate and timely accounting information while complying with government regulations per the FAR
and DFAR. His current focus is to implement scalable accounting and job cost infrastructures that can
handle a company’s rapid growth. His accounting systems have been audited by DCAA and all have
passed successfully. His current focus is also to establish acceptable bases and pools for clients to
improve their accounting systems, allowing them to be more accurate on current contracts and to be
more competitive when submitting proposals for new contracts.
Previous projects include designing and implementing accounting/job cost systems from the ground up
that can grow with the company. Redesigning current accounting systems to establish more competitive
bases and pools (most recent redesign was audited and approved by DCAA). Establishing/updating
policies and procedures to comply with DCAA internal control requirements. Designing and implementing
estimating systems to comply with DCAA forward pricing guidelines and to allow the client a more
efficient billing system for cost/flexibly priced type contracts. Establishing job cost accounting systems
that allow clients to compute percentage of completion, work in process, earned, unbilled, and billed,
unearned amounts by job. Establishing flexible estimating systems that are able to adjust indirect rates on
a prospective basis to more accurately reflect the projected indirect rates. This allows the client to bid
large projects that, if awarded, would dramatically change the company and its indirect rates.
Wayne was the CFO (ultimately president) for a seven corporation managed health care group that
was successfully sold. He has quarterbacked numerous acquisition projects both from the buy and the
sell side.
Wayne began his career with Ernst & Young (a big 4 firm), was an IRS Agent for 9 years, a defense
contract auditor for 5 years, and owned his own CPA firm for 15 years before taking the CFO position
mentioned above. He received his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Florida after
returning from Vietnam as a combat decorated veteran. He is an active member of AUSA, NDIA,
AFCEA, AICPA and FICPA. Wayne has also been a guest panelist addressing the students at the
Crummer Graduate School of Business (Rollins MBA).
