An Introduction to the FAR: A Primer on the Rules and Regulations that Govern Procurement

The Federal Acquisition Regulations (“FAR”) govern how many government agencies buy goods, services, and supplies. For federal contracting personnel, a fundamental understanding of the FAR can provide opportunities for federal career advancement amidst government-wide objectives to improve the efficiency of procurements and to also buy more, with less, in a time of fiscal austerity.

Meanwhile, government contractors who master the rules that apply to their particular lines of business, while maintaining a comprehensive understanding of the federal acquisition regulatory schema, can enhance their strategic approach when the time comes to expand their company’s federal business.

This 90-minute webinar will help government contractors and federal employees understand and assess the regulatory requirements of the FAR in order to reduced decision-based risk and to adhere to their corresponding compliance responsibilities.
