    Baker Tilly has a fast growing practice area in Federal CFO Advisory Services that assists our clients with many issues that face financial and accounting functions.  The Office of the CFO (OCFO) is faced with a complex mix of duties from traditional accounting, and finance to budget formulation, execution and oversight to regulatory compliance and risk management. These complex and divergent requirements often drive the need to obtain support from highly qualified accountants and consultants to provide support when the OCFO needs it most. Baker Tilly delivers solutions to such clients in certain key areas such as:

    • Audit readiness support
    • Project based accounting support
    • Financial restatements
    • Audit finding remediation
    • Internal controls
    • Fair value and valuation matters
    • Risk identification and management
    • Interim management assistance
    • Technical accounting assistance

     Our goal is to solve problems and make improvements that will free the OCFO organization up so that they are able to focus on growing and improving their overall business.


    It’s an exciting time to join Baker Tilly!
