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. Federal Publications Seminars announces a new webinar series, "Foundations of the FAR," designed to address these challenges in a highly practical and user-friendly way. It is comprised of twenty two 60- 90 minute sessions presented by FPS distinguished instructors. Upon completion of the series, you will have a solid understanding of the FAR and its impact on both government contractors and government procurement professionals.
