What Are FAR Final Rules and Why Should They Matter to You?
Presenter: John Lefevere, CFCM (click here for bio)
Executive Counsel, PLC

The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) is the general and permanent rules published by the executive departments and agencies of the Federal Government that is divided into 50 titles representing broad areas subject to Federal regulation. Each volume of the CFR is updated once each calendar year and is issued on a quarterly basis.

Title 48 of the CFR contains the Federal Acquisition Regulations System that represents the uniform policies and procedures for acquisition by all executive agencies. The Federal Acquisition Regulations System consists of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), which is the primary document, and agency acquisition regulations that implement or supplement the FAR.

In this session, attendees will receive updates on recent changes to the FAR, how to be notified of future updates and how recent changes may impact how businesses pursue opportunities in the government sector. Examples of recent changes include the increase to the Simplified Acquisition Threshold (from $100K to $150k) and increase to the Prime Subcontracting Threshold (from $500k to $650k). Both changes go into effect on October 1, 2010.

Attendee Suggested Experience Level: All Levels

The audience should have some knowledge of the federal government contracting system and also some practical experience in dealing with agencies.
