The Federal Acquisition Regulation 101

September 28th: The Federal Acquisition Regulation 101

For any small business pursuing and performing work on federal projects, understanding the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) is an absolute must — not only from a compliance perspective but also from cost and performance perspectives. As such, understanding the FAR will help you stay profitable and manage your performance as well as the performance of sub-contractors.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this course:

  • The most important sections of the FAR for small businesses;
  • How to navigate the FAR;
  • How to access and navigate the FAR supplements such as the DFARS, VAAR, or other agency-specific supplements;
  • The finer details of the FAR, such as the difference between provisions, prescriptions, and clauses;
  • The anatomy of the FAR, the meaning of “incorporated by reference,” and how to find those references;
  • When you must incorporate a FAR provision in a subcontract or independent contractor agreement, and how to “flow-down” FAR provisions.

GovCon Tuesday Trainings are being offered by Golden State PTAC to clients and contacts interested in learning more about the contracting environment and how to position your company to win contracts. While these recorded trainings presented by GovCon Experts typically cost at least $75.00 per person directly through the training platform, our PTAC subscription to Govology.com allows us to provide them at no cost to attendees. PTAC Counselors will be hosting each training, and will be able to provide answers to your questions during and after each session.
