When it comes to working with contractors, the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) is the “bible” for the acquisition policies and procedures used by most federal agencies.

If you have federal contracts — or are about to apply for one — you need to master the FAR to understand the terms of a contract award and what flow-downs subcontractors must accept. Understanding the FAR can help you decide whether to challenge a clause and how to troubleshoot “local clauses.” By matching what the contract says against what’s in the FAR, you can quickly resolve many of the compliance problems likely to arise.

The FAR was recently updated to prohibit the government from doing business with corporations with felony convictions or delinquent taxes, while requiring contractors to maintain additional records to assess past performance. Make sure your company stays at the cutting edge of compliance!

Led by Tim Noelker, a noted expert on federal contracting, this webinar offers today’s most up-to-date look at the FAR, its basic principles, structure and terminology — and how to use it to negotiate more favorable contracts. You’ll also learn how to continue to use the FAR after the award in applying best practices to resolve issues arising during the contract.

With the FAR, knowledge is power. You’ll learn how to work with the FAR and various supplemental regulations to spot — and address — potential problems and compliance pitfalls. It’s knowledge that helps keep contracts win-win for contractors and agencies alike.
