Description: When it comes to compliance, contracting professionals are expected to lead the way—especially when auditors come knocking. However, compliance must begin well before an audit, through the organizational compliance environment, by establishing compliant business systems and managing compliance up and down the supply chain. In this intermediate-level seminar, participants will practice making decisions to monitor and manage compliance with several FAR and other regulatory requirements. The day will include practice assessing compliance and a hands-on CPSR audit simulation where participants will practice evaluating and proving compliance through a tried-and-true three-step process. 
Course Materials: All participants will receive an electronic copy of the participant workbook.  This workbook can be viewed in your NCMA learning management account at https://www.pathlms.com/ncma/courses a few days prior to the start of the seminar.
