For any business pursuing government contracts, it is critical to understand the applicable rules and regulations. But the Federal Acquisition Regulation is lengthy and complex–and contractors may also need to follow rules outside the FAR, such as those found in FAR supplements and the regulations of the U.S. Small Business Administration. State and local contracts ordinarily aren’t subject to federal contracting regulations, but finding and understanding the applicable rules presents its own challenge.

Finding and understanding the applicable rules can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be that way. This webinar will help you learn to dissect the FAR and other procurement regulations. You’ll learn how to identify which rules apply to you, which rules you can safely ignore, and how to more quickly find what you need in the vast federal regulatory landscape.

Here’s a snapshot of our webinar agenda:

  • How to navigate the Federal Acquisition Regulation, including a FAR roadmap and breakdown to make it easier to find what you need
  • How to access and navigate other federal contracting regulations, such as the DFARS, VAAR, and SBA regulations
  • How to identify which of the many federal contracting regulations apply to your business–and which you can ignore
  • How to identify the state and local contracting rules that apply to your business, and where to go for assistance to better understand these rules

Target Audience: Small business owners/officers/contracting personnel, large business contracting personnel, APEX Accelerator counselors
