Here’s your opportunity to talk in an open forum with both experts and industry representatives who have navigated through the CPSR waters!

This month our seminar is a roundtable where the audience can interact with a 4-member panel of Contractor Purchasing System Review (CPSR) consultants and industry managers who have participated in CPSRs. The panel will answer your questions related to topics such as:

  • The current environment within DCMA regarding CPSRs
  • How the DFARS business systems clauses are affecting CPSRs
  • What a contractor can do to prepare for a CPSR
  • Hot-button issues that come up during a CPSR
  • Other areas that come under review during a CPSR
  • Expectations of getting an approval of the purchasing system

In order to address as many topics as possible during this Q&A session, we would like participants to submit questions ahead of time. Please submit your questions for the panel no later than Friday, June 14 by sending e-mail to info@ncmabd.org.
