Government Contractors

Taking the risk out of contracting with the government

The United States government contracts with the private sector for virtually everything from janitorial services to software development to training and education to parts and supplies to defense systems, and more. Companies that work with the U.S. Federal government operate in a business environment that is unique in many respects.

If your company is new to government contracting AHT can provide you with crucial guidance through the complex legal and regulatory intricacies of supplying goods and services to the government – from a risk management standpoint. Even if your company has been a government contractor for many years, the rules and regulations can change rapidly.


  • We understand what you do
    Underwriters won't insure what they don't understand. We excel at explaining to them what you do for your federal customers.
  • We check everything
    We review and understand your contracts and scope of work statements to identify areas of risk.
  • We'll teach you to avoid risks
    When the "cost of risk" is not accounted for up front, you can lose your profit margin on a government contract in a hurry. We can train your staff to help them negotiate contracts and to anticipate and develop costs for various areas of risk.
  • We can customize loss control programs
    Operating at a government facility can limit your flexibility to implement traditional loss control concepts. We customize programs to work within your "real world" constraints. This is especially important for contracts that involve more hazardous exposures.
  • We work where you work
    We are licensed to serve the needs of government contractors in every U.S. jurisdiction and around the globe.
