May The Clause Be With You Season 4

New This Year: May the Clause Be With You runs on the Wednesdays that FUN with the FAR does not run!  Join both with this excellent combo!

2022 Annual Subscription includes 23 Short, Focused Sessions, approximately 1 hour in Length, to Highlight the How and Why of Important FAR and DFARS Clauses

In this bi-weekly program, our experts will select and introduce to you—in a practical way—some of the most important but often misused FAR contract clauses in an easy-to-digest 60 minute webinars.  Some of those clauses in particular, those set forth in FAR PART 52, without doubt establish a critical foundation in every Federal Government Contract.  You might even say they’re the “Force” that binds a contract together! Thus, mastering when, how, and even if certain clauses should be referenced or used is a goal all should try to achieve.  But due to the intimidation caused by the complexity of these clauses (especially for the beginner), that goal is often seen as impossibly out-of-reach.  PCI and their expert FAR Clause Masters are ready to raise the level of your mindfulness and acumen of the FAR in a unique way.

Every session will lead to your understanding the “why” and “how” a selected clause should be used and, for prime contractors, how it should be used in federal subcontracts or adapted to commercial contracts. FAR and DFARS clauses that will be addressed throughout the year include those addressing the following topics:

  • Contractor Ethics Codes/Business Ethics and Conduct
  • Cybersecurity
  • Audit and Records
  • Inspection/Acceptance
  • Acquisition of Commercial Items
  • Cost and Pricing Analysis
  • Allowable Costs and Payment
  • Subcontract Management
  • Government Property
  • Termination
  • and more!

A short, live question/answer session will also follow each webinar. This special program will also be available via recording, so you can increase your knowledge where and when you want to! Don’t miss out on this extraordinary opportunity to have fun and raise the level of your FAR Clause knowledge from Padawan to Master. May the Clause Be with YouSM, always!

All Sessions 12:00-1:00pm (23 Sessions)

 1/12, 1/26, 2/9, 2/23, 3/9, 3/23, 4/6, 4/20, 5/4, 5/18, 6/1, 6/15, 6/29, 7/13, 7/27, 8/10, 8/24, 9/7, 9/21, 10/5, 10/19, 11/9, 12/7
