NEW! Subcontract Management From A to Z

Presenter: Jim Kirlin, CPCM, CFCM, Fellow
Room: Cheseapeake 7/8

It’s common for a prime contractor to subcontract the majority of its cost of goods sold, which can mean that up to 80 percent of the goods or services are subcontracted. The importance of subcontract management cannot be overstated. This seminar presents subcontract management in the U.S. federal government environment. Subcontract management under a government prime contract is a hybrid between the company’s commercial subcontracting requirements and the federal government subcontracting requirements. This seminar is unique in its focus on the topics that make subcontract management different under a prime government contract.

The seminar covers 32 essential subcontract management topics under the following major headings—organizing, sourcing, awarding, and managing.
