Chief Financial Officer (CFO)IT Coalition, Inc. is an information technology and consulting company focused on servicing the needs of the Federal Government. IT Coalition's mission is to apply earned expertise in information technology and business services to assist this client in achieving its mission. IT Coalition is located in Alexandria, VA and offers outstanding compensation and benefits plan and a challenging and rewarding professional work environment. ITC is a mid-sized government contractor (recently emerging from small business) with approx. 1100 employees and 80M in annual revenue. There are 2 main lines of business at ITC. The first line of business (approx. 40% of our revenue) is IT Services (IT infrastructure, SW, Oracle ERP) and the second line of business (approx. 60% of our revenue) is large business process outsourcing contracts with a large number of low wage SCA type employees. While we are able to do Cost Plus Work ITC's portfolio is all FFP, FUP, and T contracts. Approx 23 of our 26 contracts are Prime contracts. In 2020 ITC upgraded our financial system from Deltek GCS to Deltek CostPoint. We also changed payroll providers, moved to self-insured benefits plans, and integrated a third party vendor to help us manage SCA compliance. We utilized a significant number of consulting resources to do this upgrade and bring our system into compliance so that we can now consistently close our books in a timely manner and get accurate financial reporting. Moving forward we are looking for a CFO to help manage this system to hit all internal calendar milestones and service levels (invoices out quickly, books closed and reconciled by the 20th, PSRs produced monthly, quarterly deep dive reviews, annual bank audits completed in April, etc). We are also looking for a CFO who can lead the strategic financial planning with the owners. We need someone who has extensive experience working with banks and financial institutions, can develop budgets and forecasts, and has experience with Mergers and Acquisitions. We need someone who can help prepare the company for a future event in the near term. That event is not determined yet and may include an acquisition, a sale, a divestiture, a private equity partnership etc. We need a strategic business partner who can be a key part of the Senior Executive Management team to help operate ITC's financials rigorously while helping plan for the future.
