These are challenging times for government contractors. We have seen times that were unpredictable, but we have not seen today’s level of turmoil driven by budget uncertainty, combined with significant regulatory changes, and partisan politics.

There are few areas in government procurement that are not under scrutiny and subject to change. At the same time, despite the uncertainty and draconic program cuts, the federal government will still procure more than $500 billion in goods and services this fiscal year.

This year’s main seminar topics will feature key recent developments in government procurement. Detailed topics will address successful teaming agreements; mandatory disclosure requirements; supply chain challenges to include counterfeit parts; export controls; and money matters to include the next sequester and recent judicial decisions involving DCAA.

We also will present brief updates on bid protests; False Claim Act compliance; creating a small business subcontracting plan; foreign corrupt practices compliance and guidelines; and an overview of significant pending regulatory changes that are under discussion, including small business participation, intellectual property, and suspension and debarment. There also will be ample time for questions.

We hope you can join us for this complimentary program and also join us at a post-seminar reception immediately after the last question and answer period to network with other attendees and presenters.
