The speaker, who has extensive experience in VE, will discuss the basics of VE and its coverage in the FAR, as well as some of latest initiatives, such a increasing the use of the VE in service contracts. He will also provide the status of the latest government and industry initiatives to increase the use of VE. Level of Difficulty: Intermediate
