Program Description

Contractor purchasing system reviews (CPSRs) have long been a mainstay of U.S. federal government contract compliance; however, while the basic requirements have not significantly changed over time, the government has recently adopted a more stringent and inflexible view of these requirements. Part 1 of this two-part series covers fundamental concepts, such as:

  • The purpose and objectives of a CPSR,
  • Key procurement compliance requirements (and why these are important), and
  • How to assess and improve your company’s CPSR readiness.

Participants will learn about:

  • When CPSRs may likely be performed (i.e., remote, inevitable, imminent);
  • Key procurement compliance requirements;
  • How to assess purchasing system compliance and identify weaknesses; and
  • How and when to remedy compliance gaps.

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.
