“Shannon and Associates, in particular Linda and John, have been responsive and knowledgeable about the overhead audit process for federal jobs. Their audit procedures are well planned and executed, so have been accepted by the WSDOT audit office.  Unlike many CPA firms, they have the experience necessary to produce an overhead audit that complies with the FAR and AASHTO current guides while still maintaining the necessary understanding  of the workings of a small engineering firm”
