Fractional Business Operations
Pacific Impact Zone offers a suite of fractional operations to support local defense and dual use businesses. One of the chief challenges faced by startups and small businesses is a lack of senior level talent, often due to a combination of an inability to find the talent as well as have the cash flow to support senior staff members. Fractional operations provide the opportunity to access trained specialists at fractional budgets the small business can absorb.
Fractional operations are especially necessary for contractors to enter and succeed in the federal marketplace due to the numerous onerous and unique compliance obligations such as DCAA (cost accounting) and DCMA (contract management). Through internal subject matter experts plus a national network of partners, Pacific Impact Zone provides fractional operations for:
A common challenge for small businesses is the conflict between executing current work versus hunting for new work. Outsourced business development enables the small business team to focus on current execution while filling the revenue pipeline.

- Lead generation
- Contract capture
- Proposal writing
- Sole source contract acquisition
Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) impose strict, unique accounting requirements on federal contractors. Meeting FAR accounting requirements takes specialized knowledge which many small businesses lack. This directly inhibits the acquisition of larger federal contracts needed for growth.
- DCAA compliant policies and procedures
- Cost accounting setup
- Ongoing indirect rate management
- Audit support
The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) also imposes requirements for contract management. Federal government contract management includes the management of government prime contracts but also compliant subcontract flow down and management.
- Government contract management and closeout
- Subcontractor management
