Government Contracting Fundamentals Virtual Class

May 9, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm


The popular 3-day Fundamentals training is now available virtually with live instruction over the course of 8 weeks/sessions. You can attend in person at PCI in Washington, DC or virtually from any computer.

The course provides an overview and discussion of the federal government contracting process, including the procurement laws, regulations, and practical requirements applicable to it. For those who are new, relatively inexperienced, or require a supervisory understanding of government contracting, this course will provide an overview that will thoroughly familiarize the attendee with the federal contracting process, provide a strong foundation on which to build greater subject-matter expertise, and dispel common myths and misunderstandings. For those with some experience, the course will refresh understanding, heighten knowledge, provide context, sharpen issue awareness, and improve the ability to operate successfully in this highly complex and competitive field.

Who Should Attend:
This “fundamentals” course is designed to benefit both government and contractor personnel, including contracting officers, contract and subcontract administrators, contract, program and item managers, finance and accounting personnel, engineers, and attorneys (in-house, outside, government), among others.
