Fiscal Management Services

Small business owners are very busy and often must wear many hats.   Sometimes this means spending less time doing the things they envisioned when they started their business.   They find themselves catching up with invoices, bills, payroll, and customer tracking all at the end of a very long day.   Subcontracting out these duties can not only pay for itself, but it also allows business owners to the time they need to do what they do best.   Fecteau Consulting can provide a variety of services from full Financial Management to basic bookkeeping tasks.  These services include:

Grant Administration

One of the most important things any organization must do is make sure that their investors are getting a return on their investment.   For many non-profits, this means making sure that funders are kept aware and shown the impact that their money is providing.   For private organizations, the chore is the same.  Stakeholders and customers want to know what they are getting for their money.  Fecteau Consulting can devise accurate reporting systems and tools that communicate the great work you do.
