If you're a contract management professional working in government or industry, you need to have a copy of FAR Essentials by your side to help you navigate complicated government contracts.
The Desktop Guide to FAR Essentials covers the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)—the source of the uniform policies and procedures for acquisition by all U.S. federal government agencies. The FAR is thousands of pages long and deeply complex, but the Desktop Guide condenses and summarizes 28 of the most important aspects of the FAR that need to be mastered by government and industry contract management professionals.
These topics are organized under six major headings:
- Acquisition Planning,
- Contracting Methods and Types,
- Socioeconomic Programs,
- General Contracting Requirements, and
- Contract Management.
