12 Instructor-Led Virtual Training Sessions from October 2018 to September 2019 

Covering each Part of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement and created to make the DFARS approachable and thought provoking for contracting professionals at all levels.  All sessions will be recorded and accessible as a podcast throughout the year.

The Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) is a supplement specific to Department of Defense (DoD) acquisitions. The DFARS provides acquisition regulations that must be followed by both DoD government acquisition professionals and contractors who do business with the DoD. To accomplish this, it is critical for contracting professionals in the government and private sector to have a working knowledge of the source document—the DFARS. Ignorance of the rules can lead to costly and undesirable outcomes. This Virtual Training is designed to teach government and private sector contracting professionals techniques to efficiently and effectively maneuver through the extensive number of clauses and provisions in order to select the right clauses and correct procedures applicable to their contract.

The instructor and guest will answer your questions in real-time so you can discuss specific issues or gain additional knowledge about topics discussed.

Receive a complimentary copy of the DFARS Desk Reference Manual with your purchase of the entire series.
