Las Vegas, NV
Joe Longobardi, Chair

Joe is our new Las Vegas Chapter Co-Chair and has been a FENG member since November 2013. He started his career as an auditor for the Department of Defense’s Defense Contract Audit Agency and was later recruited and worked for NASA’s Inspector General, again as an auditor. Joe seemed to like the rather dry subjects of accounting in general, and, in particular, accounting for federal government contracts under the federal contract cost principles (Federal Acquisition Regulations and the Cost Accounting Standards), so he also took a position as a part-time instructor at United States Department of Agriculture’s Graduate School teaching Contract Auditing to both public and private sector auditors. His career turned to the private sector when he was hired by (then) Price Waterhouse’s Government Contractor Consulting Services Group in their Boston Office. Client travels took him to sunny California and Silicon Valley, where he was recruited by a semiconductor company engaged in federal government contracts, was hired (Boston had eighteen inches of snow at the time), and served as the Vice President of Contracts and Materials. After a few years, he re-focused himself in the high tech environment and began a broader career path in Accounting/Finance (Controller/Group Controller positions), usually in high tech development and manufacturing companies and usually where a part of the business was involved in contracting with the federal government. Joe, as he has more gray hair than black hair, performs as an independent consultant for a wide range of companies engaged in federal government contracting and who need help navigating the complex accounting rules for federal government contracts. Through experience, he has also become quite adept at integrating various software systems into a compliant package under these federal government contract accounting rules and regulations. He can be easily reached at his email address jlongoba@juno.com. When not unraveling accounting problems for companies, Joe can be found under, or in, the engine compartment of a BMW pursing his real passion, for you see, Joe is a true “gearhead” at heart.
