We began with ReliAscent at the beginning of 2020 and couldn't be happier since making the transition from our prior accounting firm. Accuracy, speed of invoicing and quality of the financials all improved significantly and immediately. Most recently the ReliAscent team got us through an exhausting months-long M&A due diligence process, with a full DCAA audit happening on top of that, and still managed to keep up with our day to day accounting tasks. I can't speak highly enough of Christy E., Desiree D. Terri A. and John K. - a five star team and experts in the GovCon accounting field!
GovCon and CAS-compliant accounting is a unique and highly complex and regulated niche arm of general accounting. ReliaAscent brought a highly-qualified team in support of our needs and a cost that no one else could match.

I've been very pleased with Reliascent as they have demonstrated the level of detail that I'm looking for along with their extensive experience in government accounting and related filings.

Reliascent, specifically Dave Donley, really helped get the financials together for our SBIR proposal to the DOE. To start with the template was excellent, very understandable and straight forward. Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, I ran a small company and I was in charge of the P&L of the business and determining the indirect rates with the tools from Reliascent were much clearer than what I had used before.
Dave's insights were invaluable and put Chroma Owl in a good position as a first time submitter of a SBIR proposal to the DOE. I really appreciated his patience and his feedback.
Chroma Owl was part of the Phase 0 training through Dawnbreaker, they were teamed up with Reliascent.

Dave D. was great. I'm great with budgets and numbers, but I had no idea about the overall SBIR process and the G&A and indirect rate calculations etc. Had I tried to figure it out on my own, I would have wasted many hours. Dave provided a video, excellent templates, and guidance all along the way. Thank you.

Dave Donley from ReliAscent was extremely helpful with the formulation of my Indirect Cost Rate, budget, budget justification, and submission. He showed me 3 different ways I could create an indirect cost rate and we discussed which would be best for me. He also has a budget form that makes it super easy to build your SBIR budget (actually, it would work with any cost-plus-fixed-fee grant). He reviewed my budget justification and showed me how to source my justifications with BLS and GSA data. After I submitted my forms on grants.gov, he checked them all and pointed out mistakes. And, he told me that if there are any budget issues that arise after notification of award, he would help me get through them. There were maybe 5-7 gotchas in the budget formulation, justification, and submission process that he saved me on. The ReliAscent assistance value far exceeds the cost!
ReliAscent was contracted through DawnBreaker for DOE SBIR grant submission assistance. ReliAscent provides assistance on Indirect Rates and Financials.
Why Trust Verified Reviews?
Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.
Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.
As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:
Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.
Unverified reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.
So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
