Acquisition Hour: Writing Sole Source Determinations

April 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This webinar will discuss the widely held beliefs by many Government contractors that certain provisions of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) dictate the reasons a contractor may use to justify a sole source determination. Discussion will include review of the FAR provisions, their applicability to sole source determinations and rationale contractors may use to make a sole source determination.

Following this overview, actual sole source determinations will be reviewed for the webinar listeners to independently review before hearing from the presenter what he considers good or bad about the sole source determination.

Who should attend:

  • Businesses that may be facing a CPSR or DCAA accounting system review
  • Anyone that must justify a sole source purchase
