Let’s go FAR – Basics of the Federal Acquisition Regulations – Traverse City

April 9, 2019, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm 

The FAR, Federal Acquisition Regulation, is a complex set of rules that regulate the federal government’s purchasing and contracting processes. The purpose of the FAR is to ensure that government purchases are handled in a standard, transparent, fair and impartial manner. It is important for businesses selling to the government to understand these rules and regulations to avoid costly pitfalls. This seminar will provide an overview of the FAR and the basic concepts that every federal contractor should know.

Topics will include:

  • What is the FAR? Where do I find it?
  • Navigating the FAR
  • FAR Clauses, Provisions and Prescriptions
  • What are agency supplements?
  • Tips to make your FAR research easier
  • Assistance available from PTAC

The workshop will be held at Networks Northwest Conference Room #3 (2nd floor Plante Moran Building), 600 E. Front Street, Traverse City, MI
