The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) is continually being revised, sometimes so frequently that it is difficult to keep track of all of the changes. The webinars in this series enable you to catch up on the most important FAR changes issued over the preceding 24 months.

The speaker is Mr. Steven N. Tomanelli, the foremost subject matter expert on the FAR, who has taught the FAR Workshop and the Advanced FAR for Federal Publications for over 20 years and edits the FAR and the Annotated FAR for Thomson-Reuters Publishing.  

In this webinar, we will not only discuss the changes, but will also explain the reason for the changes and how they will affect federal procurements.

Topics covered in this edition include:

--  The "commercial item" exception to the Truth in Negotiations Act (TINA)
--  The inflationary adjustments effective October 1, 2015
--  Uncompensated Overtime
--  Applicability of the Buy American Act to Commercial-off-the- Shelf Items 
--  Changes to equal opportunity rules
--  Restrictions applicable to "inverted corporations"
--  Restrictions on pass through contracts by prime contractors
--  Changes to small business rules
--  New service contracting reporting rules
--  New past performance reporting rules
--  Contractor minimum wage requirements
