We have fielded numerous calls from new clients asking the same question when it turns out they have violated a FAR provision: “Do they really expect me to read all of those regulations? How is someone supposed to understand everything that is in there?” Unfortunately, the answer is “yes” the government does expect you to know all of the FAR and DFARS clauses that are relevant to your work and to follow them to the letter. Not only that, but by virtue of the fact the FAR and DFARS are publicly available, all contractors are presumed to have a knowledge of all the clauses and understand them. This reality can be daunting for a new company or even a large well-established businesses looking to enter the federal space. During this session we will look at some of the most confusing and poorly understood FAR and DFARS provisions to give you a leg up on your competition or be able to help your own companies or those you work with in navigating these areas of the law.

We will investigate:

  • FAR and DFARS Data Rights Clauses
  • Mandatory Disclosure Requirements
  • Employee Compensation Reporting Requirements
  • Small Business Recertification under the FAR and 13 CFR
  • Allowable Costs Provisions
  • IDIQ Ordering Procedures
  • And many more!
