Contracting with the Federal Government presents a lucrative but often intimidating opportunity for businesses.  This one-day overview attempts to demystify the subject by introducing participants to some of the unique elements of doing business with the Federal Government (vs commercial opportunities): The Federal Procurement Cycle, Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), Contract Types, Cost Accounting, and Timesheet keeping standards pertaining to Federal contracting. 

Participants will also learn where to look for opportunities and will receive a quick overview of key aspects of Federal RFPs’ organization and significant data points.   They will be exposed to industry “best practices” for preparing a compliant proposal and the process for their evaluation. 

Course Objectives:

  1. Understand the role of the Federal Acquisition Regulations in the government acquisition process;

  2. Share Industry Best Practices for contractors throughout key stages of an acquisition/opportunity.

Team-taught by two Federal contracting professionals with more than a half-century of experience, participants will also have opportunities to pose their own questions throughout the day to ensure the experience is somewhat tailored to their needs.

Time 8:00 AM for registration, Close 4:00 PM.
