Using the FAR to Protect your Contract During a Pandemic

Posted by Mike Anderson on Tue, Mar 24, 2020 @ 10:37 AM

What protection do you have from delays caused by the COVID-19 virus in your federal contract?   How can you assure you are paid as rapidly as possible during this difficult time? 

These are only some of the questions that every Federal Contractor should be asking themselves and be prepared to respond to as soon as possible to help assure the survival of their business.

As the COVID-19 virus spreads across our country and the globe, many federal contractors are not only concerned about the safety of their employees and families, but also the dire financial implications; from keeping the lights on, to the increasing risk of missing contractual deadlines. As supply chains across the globe slow or halt, you close your doors, or move to a work from home model, these changes could all impact your small business’ ability to perform and deliver.

Cost and Pricing Data Explained

Posted by Tyler Link on Wed, Jan 29, 2020 @ 11:00 AM

We are only four weeks into 2020...hard to believe, with all that is going on in Washington.  But, a piece of news you may have missed in the chaos of the last few months will have consequences for many defense contractors this year, and (likely) many years to come:

The DCAA will be tripling the number of Defective Pricing Audits in FY 2020, now that their extensive backlog of Incurred Cost Audits has finally been eliminated.

Given this new focus, now is an excellent time to revisit cost and pricing data, TINA, FAR Part 15, and what they all mean for government contractors.  The following blog is taken from a popular white paper, written by ReliAscent Account Executive, Dave Donley.  It provides valuable insights into these topics and is a terrific resource for new government contractors.
