Contracting for Non-Contracting Government Personnel

Working Effectively in Contracting Efforts for Technical Specialists and Leaders

A 3 Day Workshop For Government Employees

Each year the USA spends over $380 Billion on government contracts yet getting the correct outcomes from a contract is complex and often less than fully successful. Technical and Functional specialists, who work outside the contracting office, must work from foundational knowledge of the Federal Acquisition Regulation and contracting practice to properly specify requirements, evaluate proposals, and accept final deliverables.

This workshop dives straight into the processes and documents required to hire the right contractor and achieve a successful outcome. Your personnel will be able to work more effectively on service or product purchases by knowing the laws, terms, policies, and schedules that drive actions by your Contracting Officer.

Topics included in this workshop include—

  • Overview of the FAR System and Contracting Terms
  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • Timelines, Steps and a Roadmap to Getting on Contract
  • Developing Requirements
  • The impact of Public Law, Regulations and Directives
  • Types of Contracts and Requirements Documents
  • Evaluation Factors, Performance Standards, and Performance Incentives


Audience: This workshop is designed for Technical- and Subject Matter- Specialists who work with contract management.
