Taking the Mystery Out of Rights in Technical Data - Session 1 - Intellectual Property Series 2021
Intellectual Property Series - 2021
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. But if one steps back from the length of the data rights clauses and instead views them with some very simple, common-sense concepts in mind, the clauses become surprisingly easy to understand and to apply. 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. NOTE: CPE/CLE credit for attendees is subject to participation and approval by the governing boards.

DCAA Forward Pricing Rate Audits - Session 1 - DCAA Audits Series 2021
DCAA Audits Webinar Series - 2021
A Forward Pricing Rate Proposal (FPRP) is one of the main outputs of a contractor's annual budgeting and planning cycle, and thus receives a lot of audit attention.

Join our experts for this one-hour webinar - part of a larger webinar series focused on government audits - to discuss common forward pricing rate audit challenges and findings, strategic risk mitigation options, and tactical tips and tricks to ensure a successful audit. Learning Objectives:  The purpose and intent of forward pricing rates, and the focus of government audits  Who performs these audits, with a primary focus on the Defense Contract Audit Agency  Recent areas of attention and common challenges contractors face during FPRP and proposal audits  How estimating business system audits intersect with and are impacted from FPRP audits  Strategies for managing and addressing audit requests  Key estimating process risk areas and how to mitigate them
