CPSR Requirements for Non Procurement Personnel
Despite the fact that auditors focus on the review of procurement files when performing audits of the subcontracting process, it is simply a fact that most of the compliance mistakes happen before procurement professionals are even involved in the process. Since most of the compliance-related decisions are made early in the process by non-procurement professionals such as Business Developers, Engineers, Senior Management, etc., it's imperative that they understand the compliance impacts of those decisions. The purpose of this webinar is to provide these functions with an overview of the laws, government policies, and regulations that apply to subcontracts as they relate to CPSR. The course will begin with an overview of the oversight requirements contained within the CPSR process. Additionally, it will address how sourcing decisions made by non-procurement professionals can negatively impact the results of this review. Topics will include:  The overview of the Subcontracting and Purchasing Process  Roles and Responsibilities of Non-Procurement Professional in Process  Key Processes Influenced by Non-Procurement Professionals: o Non-Disclosure Statements o Establishment of Teaming Agreements o Developing Statements of Work o Source Selection o Socio-Economic Considerations o Obtaining Pricing/Providing Target Pricing o Technical Evaluations o Acquisition of Commercial Items o Conducting Market Research o Establishing Procurement Lead-time o Subcontractor Responsibility o Transactional Level Oversight (Advanced Notification and Consent to Subcontract) Presented by Jeffery White
