Learning the Federal Acquisition Regulation — the FAR — is a daunting, but necessary, undertaking for both contracting personnel and contractors alike.
The 2,000-page FAR is the rule book federal agencies use to plan, award, and administer virtually all government contracts. Contracting officers must master the FAR in order to construct contracts correctly. Likewise, contractors must learn the FAR in order to compete more effectively and execute contract work in accordance with the rules.
On June 3, 2014, Georgia Tech’s Contracting Education Academy is kicking-off an intensive four-day course that helps participants learn how to identify the basic principles of government contracting, access online resources, and locate, cite, and interpret information in the FAR and agency supplements to the FAR such as the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS).

CON 090-1: Contracting Overview of the FAR is actually the first of four modules in the CON 090 – Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Fundamentals series. Each module involves limited lecture, and features an exercise-based curriculum that takes a look at the federal acquisition environment from a macro-level.
The Contracting Education Academy at Georgia Tech (The Academy) is an approved equivalency training provider to the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) and provides continuing education training to Acquisition and Government Contracting professionals as well as to business professionals working for government contractors or pursuing opportunities in federal contracting.
