Join us for a live, interactive webinar that you can participate in from your office.

Truth in Negotiations Act (TINA) Essentials

Program Code: 170056
Seminar Date: Tuesday, June 5, 2012
Start Time: 12:00 PM EST
Registration fee: $189.00

Despite its 50 year history as law, TINA and its coined term "cost or pricing data" retain an air of mystery in practical application.  Over these years, regulations have been written and re-written (as recently as August 2010) in attempts to define vague terms and concepts, explain applicability, and provide instructions for proposal submission and analysis.  While today's regulations are clearer than ever before, considerable mystique remains.  This fast paced, information packed webinar is designed to clarify the essential elements of TINA and provide a foundational understanding for improved compliance.
