ASME Certification - ASME is the leading international developer of codes and standards associated with the art, science, and practice of mechanical engineering.  The goal of the ASME is to develop the best, most applicable codes, standards, conformity assessment programs, and related products and services in the world for the benefit of humanity.  Swanda shares this objective and is in the final stages of obtaining this valuable ASME certification.

DCAA Compliant Administrative Systems - Successful small businesses possess the need for reliable, accessible and traceable data that reconciles internal billing information with federal (as well as commercial) contracts, and with annual estimates of expenses.  Swanda possesses the talent, resources and systems that are of critical importance to federal government contractors who do business with the Department of Defense (DoD).  Swanda is able to provide excruciating detail about the direct, indirect and overhead expenses associated with every item billed to the government or a commercial enterprise in fulfillment of specific contract awards.  Government contractors require more sophisticated accounting systems and support than most businesses in the private sector.  Swanda has made the investments necessary in people, processes and systems to ensure the highest level of financial accountability for the last 50 years. 

Audited Financial Statements - Although not required, annually Swanda also contracts with an independent accounting firm to provide its owner and executive management team with audited financial statements.  This financial review provides assurances of the accuracy of financial information for Swanda as well as the reasonableness of internal controls over financial information.
