Course Description:

When it comes to winning a share of ever-tighter federal budgets, contractors with a strong and clean reputation have a tremendous advantage.  Unfortunately, managing your reputation today can be extremely challenging:

You must understand the enhanced tools agencies are using to collect your past performance data. You must be an expert on the processes agencies use to conduct those all-important CPAR reviews so you can avoid pitfalls that can lead to disputes and negative evaluations. Plus, if you should ever receive a less-than-positive review, you must be ready to launch an effective challenge.

Here’s the expert guidance you need to achieve this new level of control over past performance—and new business.

In this 90-minute webinar, government contracting expert Tim Noelker shows you today’s best strategies for turning past performance into new business.  You’ll learn how past performance evaluations (CPARs) are conducted, including the tools federal agencies use to collect past performance information and how they use that information during negotiated competitive acquisitions. You’ll also learn what strategies are proving most effective in giving contractors their best chances of earning a positive evaluation.

Options beyond what’s outlined in the FAR. In addition to strategies for ensuring a positive review, you’ll learn what to do if you receive a negative performance evaluation—including how to go beyond the traditional procedures outlined in the Federal Acquisition Regulation to dispute the outcome of the review. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now to take new control over past performance reviews, including:

  • A clear understanding of the process the Federal government uses to conduct past performance evaluations (CPARs)
  • Strategies that can be used to ensure you receive a meaningful review
  • Pitfalls that could lead to disputes in the performance evaluation process
  • Your options for challenging a negative performance evaluation at the Court of Federal Claims or boards of contract appeals.

Remember, unsatisfactory past performance is more than a competitive disadvantage.  In some cases, it can trigger bid protests, suspension and even debarment. Don’t miss this chance to learn how to take greater control over your own past performance reviews—and future success.
