We have fielded numerous calls from clients asking the same question when facing issues concerning potential FAR provision violations: “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 adhere to them throughout performance. Not only that, but by virtue of the fact that the FAR and DFARS are publicly available, all contractors are presumed to have knowledge of all the clauses and understand them as a precursor to doing business with the federal government. This reality can be daunting for new companies or even 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, and 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!
