Program Description

Building upon Part 1 of this two-part series, getting ready for a Contractor Purchasing System Review (CPSR), Part 2 addresses how to proceed when the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) issues notice of a pending CPSR. The presenters will discuss all phases of the CPSR, from initial notification, managing the review, the exit conference, and ultimately responding to findings.

Participants will learn about:

  • What to expect from and how to respond to DCMA’s initial data request,
  • Composition of the review team,
  • What to expect during the review and how to manage communications, and
  • When and how to respond to findings.

This fast-paced webinar will address the above issues and more while giving you the opportunity to ask our experts for advice about your unique concerns.
