On May 24th in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA), Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA), and highly experienced industry representatives will provide a unique training opportunity for companies currently doing business with or considering doing business with the Department of Defense (DoD) or major prime defense contractors.

This is a must attend for companies currently performing on, or considering proposing on, a DoD Cost Type contracts, sole source contracts exceeding $700,000, or proposing as a subcontractor to a major prime defense contractor.  Why?

Are you currently performing on a cost type contract including Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contracts?  Do you understand the accounting requirements and post-award audit process?

Do you appreciate the importance of how significantly your procedures could affect final negotiated costs years after finishing performance?

Have you ever considered submitting a proposal for a cost type contract, SBIR/STTR contract, or a subcontract on a major defense program?

Do you know what information a major defense contractor would request in support of a subcontract proposal?

Have you ever been audited by DCAA or has DCMA ever requested information in support of a prime or subcontract proposal analysis?

Do you know what the Contractor Business Analysis Repository (CBAR) is?  Did you know that the DoD now posts your indirect rates, business system status, and other information on an internal website accessible to all DoD contracting officers?  Do you understand what effect that may have on your eligibility for a DoD contract award in the future?

This is NOT an event focused on small business certifications or Contracting 101 although the information is important for contractors considering doing business in the future.  The focus of this event is on the complex regulatory and procedural information needed to successfully perform or propose on major defense contracts.

Do not miss this unique opportunity to learn from the very same DoD representatives responsible for managing those contracts.
