The Contracting Education Academy at Georgia Tech (The Academy) kicks-off a course on Tuesday, October 20, 2015 that covers the fundamentals of federal contracting.
The four-day course, known as Module 1 of CON 090: Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Fundamentals, includes the identification of all the basic principles of contracting by the federal government. The course identifies and provides access to on-line resources, and provides instruction on the location, citation, and interpretation of all 53 Parts of the FAR. Also covered are the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) and other FAR supplements to the FAR issued by federal agencies.
The course is being conducted at Georgia Tech’s world-class professional education facilities in the Global Learning Center located on campus in midtown Atlanta. Click here for course registration details.
This course was originally designed exclusively for federal contracting officers, but The Academy has expanded its scope so that it is relevant to multiple audiences, including contractors seeking to learn more about the federal contracting process as well as federal officials who need to satisfy job-related continuous education requirements.
In all, there are four Modules that make-up the CON 090 course series. Information about the entire series can be found at: http://www.pe.gatech.edu/courses/con-090-federal-acquisition-regulation-far-fundamentals.
