Truth in Negotiations Act (TINA) Essentials

Topic: FAR Part 15 - Contract Pricing
Original Air Date: Tuesday, June 5, 2012
Program Code: 170056
CPEs: 1.50

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.
