Contract Management – News, Views, and Analysis

Surprisingly Intense Feelings About GovCon Financial-System Software


Compusearch has met recently with hundreds of GovCon managers and executives. Although we don’t sell any financial-system software, our contracts software connects with financial and other GovCon systems. Based on these meetings with professionals having centuries of collective GovCon experience, we know that almost every firm has financial management software from Deltek, Jamis, or Unanet and that their users seem polarized. Some users seem quite pleased while many seem very frustrated.

A few responses to illustrate the pleasure and pain:

  • “<the system> has a framework that each company can easily customize.”
  • “Good for financials, but hopeless for GovCon contract management.”
  • “Horrible support. Last year I was unable to run accurate payroll for a few periods.”
