CAS 412 and 413 - Pension Cost: Composition, Allocation, Adjustment
Cost Accounting Standards (CAS)
October 19, 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET - This webinar will cover CAS 412 and 413 which includes: composition and measurement of pension cost (412); and adjustment and allocation of pension cost (413).

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.

FAR Overview - Systems and Definitions
2019 Foundations of the FAR
October 22, Noon-1:30 pm ET --FAR - Overview, Systems and Definitions Initial session of the 2019 Foundations of the FAR webinar series. The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) directly affects the purchase and sale of over $200 billion worth of supplies, services and construction each year by federal and state procurement offices. This critically important document is comprehensive, complex, and continually changing. All contract professionals involved in a FAR-based procurement must have a detailed working knowledge of the FAR to ensure that they are getting the best possible contract and that they are in full compliance with all applicable laws. This series is designed to address these challenges in a highly practical and user-friendly way. In this first session, Eric Crusius, a reputable authority in the field, will give an overview of the series, discuss the Federal Acquisition Regulation system, and introduce you to the relevant definitions frequently found throughout the FAR. What You Will Learn This overview is intended to give the relative newcomer to federal acquisitions a general understanding of the origin and evolution of the FAR so the listener has a contextual reference when consulting the actual document. We will discuss the historical background of the FAR, describe when the FAR applies and does not apply, explain the structure of the FAR and how it corresponds to agency FAR supplements. We will cover: Part 1: Federal Acquisition Regulations System Part 2: Definitions of Words and Terms This live webinar is eligible for both CLE and CPE credit.

Other Transaction Agreements - Something Old is New Again.
November 2nd Noon- 1pm ET - Other Transaction Agreements - Something Old is New Again The 2016 NDAA breathed new life into the Prototype Other Transaction Agreements ("OTAs"). OTAs are a unique federal contractual instrument which have flexible rules for certain agencies to develop product prototypes as well as pursue research and development opportunities. OTAs can be awarded to individual entities or to consortiums, including consortiums formed specifically to perform a specific OTA. Consequently, OTAs are touted as the "freedom to contract" and often are perceived to be less stringent than typical federal procurement contracts because they may be free of many of the onerous requirements and practices characteristic of procurement contracts such as the government contract cost accounting, rights in technical data (and other intellectual property), and other procurement contract unique requirements. Thus, OTAs present the opportunity for parties to carefully craft and tailor the contract to maximize efficiencies and facilitate the effectiveness of the program, and because they are not generally subject to the procurement laws or regulations (including the Federal Acquisition Regulation or FAR) this seminar is useful for anyone who works for a company who has a technology or idea that has a potential benefit to the Department of Defense but who is loathe to enter into a standard procurement contract. The presentation will provide a brief overview of OTAs, a description of the key elements of consideration for the use of an OTA, and a discussion of the minimum requirements of an OTA for future work.
