Supply Chain Management and Compliance (TX)

January 22 @ 1:00 pm - January 23 @ 4:00 pm




The Supply Chain Management and Compliance course is an intensive 1.5 day overview and interactive dialogue on the supply chain management risks and compliance issues that face government contractors. A government contractor must understand and effectively address a broad range of issues including laws, regulations, initiatives, and a number of new developments that cover issues from cyber threats to counterfeit parts. In addition, a supply chain may be globally dispersed, which raises additional issues. Whether you are new to supply chain management or have experience, this course will provide an understanding of supply chain risks and compliance requirements, including emerging issues, and provide a strong foundation on which to build greater subject-matter expertise. This course is designed to be of benefit and interest to both government and contractor personnel, including supply chain managers, purchasing personnel, contracting officers, contract and subcontract administrators, program managers, and attorneys (in-house, outside counsel, government).

Please note this class will run from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Monday and 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Tuesday.

Previous attendees have commented on the value of the class review and discussion of key terms & conditions used with suppliers. For this reason, attendees are invited and encouraged to bring their standard supplier terms & conditions of purchase — or those of key customers — in order to facilitate class discussion.
