Cost Accounting Standards for Small and Medium Contractors - The Basics - 2020 Series
Cost Accounting Standards for Small and Medium Contractors - 2020 Series
The speaker in this series will provide deep and industry-wide experience to help you uncover the myriad of cost accounting practices that prepare you for CAS. The concepts identified during this two-part series will help your Finance experts as well as your Ownership, Operations and Contracts personnel. Many contracts contain the FAR clause 52.230-2 Cost Accounting Standards (CAS). Most small businesses are exempt from CAS Coverage under 48 CFR 9903 but are preparing for growth - meaning they will likely be covered soon. Many medium firms do not have a CAS-covered contract yet or are preparing to complete their first Disclosure Statement. In both instances, Government contractors may become subject to CAS with just the right contract award. CAS is a set of standards that are designed to achieve uniformity and consistency in cost accounting practices and deals with the allocability of costs. To achieve the consistency that auditors look for and that contractors can adhere to, we will examine the applicable cost principles as well as defining the homework necessary to easily prepare for disclosure. Walk with us as we talk about the basics of what is required to prepare for a Disclosure Statement, as well as know when CAS should be on your radar. This is the first webinar in the Cost Accounting Standards for Smalls & Mediums Series. Learning Objectives: 1. Learn what's behind Cost Accounting Standards 2. Know CAS Disclosure Statement applicability thresholds..and when they are not applicable 3. Find out the "basics" of CAS that all contractors need to adhere to 4. Discover elementary cost accounting principles 5. Understand accounting system requirements to ensure compliance with the Standards NOTE: CPE/CLE credit for attendees is subject to participation and approval by the governing boards.

Deep Dive into Department of Defense Implementation of CARES Act Section 3610
Deep dive into the Department of Defense implementation of CARES Act section 3610 Subtitle: Key considerations for contractors seeking relief for impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic Description: The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic crisis have disrupted businesses across all regions and industries and government contractors have not been immune. Congress provided a path for government contractors to seek relief through the CARES Act, specifically section 3610. Government agencies have scrambled to craft actionable guidance for contracting officers and the contracting community. DoD has been at the forefront of this effort, issuing the most comprehensive guidance to date. In this on-demand webinar, we dissect the regulatory approach taken by agencies in implementing section 3610, emphasizing DoD's approach. We will focus on cost recovery, tease relevant clues and cues from contract clauses and case law, and post warning signs where we see potential compliance and audit pitfalls. Join Baker Tilly and Arnold & Porter to explore and map the labyrinth of agency guidance implementing section 3610, from broad pronouncements to complex and detailed rules, clauses, and checklists. Learning Objectives: By the end of this webinar, you should be able to:  Describe CARES Act section 3610 and its applicability  Explain DoD implementation guidance, including the DFARS class deviation, associated FAQ, and its detailed checklists to guide submission and review of requests for relief  Describe guidance from the Office of Management and Budget, General Services Administration, and other key stakeholders and summarize any pending legislation of which contractors should be aware  Identify areas that are potentially ripe for audit scrutiny and thus should be a focus for contractors seeking reimbursement  Highlight pre-existing authorities, including contract clauses and case law, that may prove important to claims for NOTE: CPE/CLE credit for attendees is subject to participation and approval by the governing boards.

Intellectual Property Series - Taking the Mystery Out of Rights in Technical Data - 2020
Intellectual Property Series - 2020
This is session 1 of 3 in the FPS Intellectual Property Series. The "data rights" clauses in the FAR and DFARS are some of the longest and least understood contract provisions.

Learning Objectives: By the end of this webinar, you should be able to:  understand the basic principles of rights in technical data and the common misunderstandings about who owns the rights in the data;  determine whether the data rights clauses require delivery;  when development occurs- better understand-what is private expense; who gets rights in government-funded modifications, how to alert the government to your rights and to correctly mark your data;  understand how to keep your engineers from inadvertently giving up your data rights.

The concepts identified during this two-part series will help your Finance experts as well as your Ownership, Operations and Contracts personnel.

This is the second webinar in the Cost Accounting Standards for Smalls & Mediums Series. Learning Objectives: 1. Know the basics of modified CAS coverage 2.
