B.E.A.R(Business Evaluation And Review).

Our initial step with every client is to conduct a Business Evaluation And Review, (B.E.A.R.). This is a comprehensive audit and analysis of the major components of your business including:

    • Management and Administration
    • Marketing and Sales
    • Estimating
    • Contract Administration
    • Field Production
    • Finance and Accounting

Before we perform the review we ask you to provide us with specific documents and records from you business that will facilitate the review. We also ask that you prepare a list of goals and objectives you would like to see accomplished and implemented.

The review is performed at your location and usually takes between 16 and 24 hours. It includes discussions with your key personnel and an in-depth evaluation of your operating procedures.

On the last day of the review we will give you the preliminary findings and what we see as the areas negatively affecting your bottom line.

Within a week from the review we will prepare a detailed written evaluation that will provide you with:

    • An operations flow chart
    • An analysis of your business’ strengths and weaknesses
    • An explanation of your business’ problem areas
    • A strategic action plan that identifies what needs to be done to meet your goals and objectives

The action plan is extensive and specifically details all necessary steps. It will not exceed a 12-month period and we are available 24/7 during that period to answer any questions you may have about establishing, implementing and maintaining the plan.

Our recommended solutions vary with the client. Areas we have concentrated on in the past have included:         

    • Estimate Budgeting
    • Equipment Costing
    • Implementation and training on Computer Applications
    • Budget Development
    • Equipment Purchase Analysis
    • Defining jobs definitions
    • Development of Standard Operating Procedures
    • Operating Efficiencies
    • Marketing Campaigns

Anyone of these could be a service provided to you. 


The Operations & Procedure Audit is performed to determine the degree to which operation procedures are standardized within your business and their actual effectiveness.

In general, the audit will take between 8 and ten hours to complete. Once fieldwork is performed, we will analyze the data obtained and present you with a written report of our findings. Based on the findings, we will recommend revisions and/or additions to existing operating processes to ensure their future effectiveness.

The audit encompasses a review of the following segments of your business:

Office and Administration

After investing in the expertise of a management consultant, many businesses fail to pursue the recommendations provided. Usually this is because neither the client nor the consultant stay in touch with each other after the plan of action has been explained.

At GSA, we strive to eliminate this problem by offering our clients the C-MORE-RESULTS program.

With the C-MORE-RESULTS program, The client has the services of a CEO and CFO at his fingertips, when he needs them. The client submits their financial statements and budgets to us on a monthly basis. We review the information and teleconference with the client about our findings.

This continual review allows us to monitor and advice our client on the major segments of his business including operations, sales, marketing and personnel management. In addition, we provide the client with 24/7 access to us so he may initiate a call whenever he believes it is necessary.

This innovative program’s E-Z Pay program is affordable to any size company.
