Federal Contracting Basics


As a contracting professional — either new to procurement or with years of experience — your skills and knowledge directly contribute to the success and growth of your organization and to the development of your career. By attending, Federal Contracting Basics, you’ll receive the proven tools and guidance you need to fulfill your key responsibilities and to contribute to the success of the contracting projects in which you are involved.

Federal Contracting Basics is an intensive, five-day introduction to government contracting, giving you the information you need to understand procurement from start to finish — from acquisition planning through contract closeout. You’ll analyze key issues fully and receive a clear understanding of their practical application to your everyday job responsibilities. You’ll learn how federal contracting really works, how to find solutions to common problems, how to understand the content of key contract documents and how the regulatory environment impacts business decisions. All of this will be accomplished through dynamic lectures, case studies and interactive exercises.

In addition, you’ll receive a copy of the FAR for permanent reference. You will use your copy of the FAR extensively throughout the course as you research a wide range of topics. You will learn how the FAR is structured, maintained and updated so that you will be able to use it to your full advantage in your ongoing development as a contracting professional.
