Program Description

Are you a CAS-covered Government contractor selling products or services to DoD or NASA?

Are you a small business selling electronic components to a large business Government contractor?

If you answered “yes” to either question, did you know you must have a counterfeit electronic parts detection and avoidance system (CPDAS)?

This presentation will help attendees prepare their companies for CPDAS requirements set forth in DFARS 252.246-7007(c) (MAY 2014) and proactively apply these requirements to their DoD and NASA supply chains.

In this seminar, attendees will:

  • Explore the different review and audit processes applied to Primary vs. Secondary Business Systems
  • Learn the components of a compliant Counterfeit Parts Detection and Avoidance System (I-TIER)
  • Discuss compliant and efficient application of CPDAS requirements – and exceptions – to your DoD and NASA supply chains
  • Review the incorporation of CPDAS requirements into the CPSR process via DFARS 252.244-7001(c)(19)(20) & (21)

Earn 2 Continuing Professional Eduction (CPE) credits for attending.
