PEO Relationship for Government Contractors
In a PEO relationship, government contractors retain complete autonomy and control over their businesses. The PEO arrangement has no bearing on the contractor's status. Crucially, the client maintains direction and control over daily operations, employee management, vendor negotiations, and contractual engagements, ensuring uninterrupted control over their business affairs.
Fulfilling Government Contractual Obligations
Government contractors, regardless of their PEO relationship, continue to fulfill their obligations under government contracts. This includes responsibilities such as employee qualification, training, and adherence to specific contract terms. The PEO does not assume control or supervision of the contractor's business activities, ensuring that the contractor operates and fulfills contractual commitments as they did before entering the PEO relationship.
Meeting Specialized Needs of Government Contractors
Government contractors, especially those involved with the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), have unique requirements such as security clearances and specific personnel file handling. A PEO can address these specific needs through tailored solutions. Whether it's maintaining confidentiality, adhering to security clearance obligations, or preserving business designations like DBE/MBE/WBE, a PEO ensures that entering into such a relationship doesn't compromise the contractor's certifications or obligations.
