Susan has over 20 years of accounting, government accounting, and Deltek experience – and still maintains a full head of hair! She works with all functions in the Accounting and Projects modules, as well as working with specific areas of People, Materials and Sys Admin functions.
Susan has user experience with both GCS and Costpoint, as well as performing implementations, training, troubleshooting and documentation functions for our clients. She started with Costpoint version 3.0 and has worked in each version up to the current 7.1 version – and does it all with a smile and a very large swear jar. Her favorite area to work in is the clean-up and reconciliation of Unbilled Receivables, Billings, Fixed Assets and Project Ledger to GL reconciliation issues. She loves to assist clients with unraveling issues, understanding the cause of the issue and developing a plan to avoid repeating the issue.
Her many years of audit experience assists her in quick assessment of the issues, and her ability to freely admit that she knows the problem areas because she has been the cause of them, makes her a great candidate for assisting your company with whatever type of Costpoint assistance you may need.

Joe has over thirty years of experience in the government contracting industry. He began his career as an accounting intern while finishing his B.A. in Accounting. After graduating, he was an auditor at Grant Thornton where he primary focused on government contractors and not-for-profit organizations. The vast majority of these customers were using Deltek products. Joe then gathered his business experience and held managerial positions at several government contractors ranging from Corporate Controller to Director of Finance and Administration where he implemented Deltek products internally.
In 1997, Joe became a Deltek Accounting & Finance consultant supporting Deltek System 1 (which became GCS Premier) and Costpoint. As he rose through the ranks of consulting, he managed dozens of ERP implementation projects. This makes Joe unique, since most ERP Project Managers do not have hands-on product knowledge. As a Deltek Service Director, Joe oversaw and developed other Deltek consultants and played a key role in guiding customers and consultants through their implementations. Joe became an independent contractor in 2013 and has successfully managed several large ERP implementations.
Because of his hands-on product knowledge, he has the ability to understand situations and foresee issues that typical Project Managers cannot. He is capable of bringing both functional consulting and project management experience to implementations. One highlight of his accomplishments, which occurred in 2017-2018, was to take a $1.6B customer live on an array of Deltek products in just 9 months – the implementation was a success and set a record for shortest duration compared to other similar-sized efforts.
