Wed 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM
Topic: Government Contracting

IN-PERSON WORKSHOP - Small Business Development Center |1455 West Loop South, Houston, Texas 77027-9530, 9th Floor, Suite 900

This webinar will cover Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 12 – Acquisition of Commercial Items procedures along with other applicable provisions, e.g., FAR 52.212-1, Instructions to Offers -- Commercial Items. These procedures are used when a good or service being purchased is a commercial item. A large percentage of purchases made by the federal government are for commercial items, so you need to know how to develop a compliant offer when these procedures are used. For, a noncompliant offer can be placed aside and given no further consideration for contract award. This webinar does not apply to individuals in construction and construction-related fields.

This webinar will educate you in:

• Understanding how to research the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and agency supplements

• The procurement methods used by the federal government – Request for Quote (RFQ), Invitation for Bid (IFB), and Request for Proposal (RFP) and when they are used

• Knowing when FAR Part 12 commercial item purchase procedures apply

• The essential clauses and provisions for you to know to prepare a compliant commercial item offer

• How to develop a compliant outline of your offer for commercial item purchases
