CAS is one of the most complex, and punitive, laws for contractors to contend with, whether it be for new or established contractors of the U.S. Government. Once a contractor pursues, or is awarded, a CAS covered contract, their profile, regulatory requirements, and audit interest, are immediately pronounced. Simply understanding it's applicability to your U.S. Government contract universe can be an exercise in mixed interpretation. This series breaks CAS down to its fundamental requirements in simple, relatable terms to assist contractors in understanding applicable requirements, but also practical strategies for compliance, delivered by instructors who have dedicated their careers to CAS, and related U.S. Government regulatory requirements. Each webinar will provide the genesis of the standard, illustrating its purpose and move into specific compliance requirements of the respective Standard(s) covered. Instructors will share examples of common "pitfalls"" and highlight areas of risk contractors should be aware of in compliance with the respective Standard(s). The webinars have purposefully been grouped in a manner that will aid in understanding the inter-relationship of some Standards to others. Who should attend these sessions?

DCAA and the Disappearing Incurred Cost Backlog
August 9th, noon - 1pm EDT. In its 2017 report to Congress, DCAA stated that it is "back on track to eliminate its (incurred cost) backlog by September 30, 2018". Although some doubt the validity of DCAA's self-declared success, the real question, what is the impact on contractors; good, bad or both? This webinar will discuss the implications including the mutual benefits of more current audits, but also the hidden risks to government contractors audited or potentially audited by DCAA.  Brief description of the regulation which requires contractor incurred cost proposals  Events that caused DCAA to all-but stop auditing incurred cost proposals; hence, the backlog  DCAA actions to reduce the backlog, notably no longer auditing "low risk" auditors  DCAA's historical and current count of proposals awaiting audit and the changing definition of an acceptable inventory  Types of audits which have been deferred pending DCAA's elimination of the backlog  DCAA's future audit priorities and how more current audits exposes contractors to more risks (accounting systems in particular)  "Connecting the dots" or knowing how DCAA expands incurred cost issues (if current) into other compliance issues This webinar is sponsored by JAMIS.
