CAS is one of the most complex, and punitive, laws for contractors to contend with, whether it be for new or established contractors of the U.S. government. Once a contractor pursues, or is awarded, a CAS covered contract, their profile, regulatory requirements, and audit interest are immediately pronounced. 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've dedicated their careers to CAS and related U.S. government regulatory requirements.    

Each webinar will provide the genesis of the standard, illustrating its purpose and move into specific compliance requirements of the respective Standard(s) covered. Instructors will share examples of common “pitfalls”” and highlight areas of risk contractors should be aware of in compliance with the respective Standard(s). The webinars have purposefully been grouped in a manner that will aid in understanding the inter-relationship of some Standards to others.     

Who should attend these sessions?  
We recommend this course for anyone that is interested in an introduction or refresher to CAS, or looking for practical insights from consulting and legal practitioners that work with CAS routinely.
