Mr. Sarria also provides compliance advice to large and small businesses on a wide-variety of federal procurement laws and regulations, including matters involving cost allowability and allocation, commercial-item contracting, cost and pricing data requirements, socioeconomic regulations, and GSA schedule contracting.
