Live Webinar: CPSRs in the Time of Quarantine

Even during this time of the pandemic and quarantines, DCMA continues to move forward with CPSRs, although not in the same manner. Join CPSR expert Mark Hijar from ProcureLinx as he discusses how CPSRs operate during this unprecedented time. Mark will also update us on other CPSR topics dealing with CMMC, new Buy America requirements, and more.


Program Description

Are you freaking out about a CPSR coming up in 2021?

Do you have an unapproved purchasing system but need some points during a big IDIQ proposal evaluation and don’t know where to begin?

Are you worried that CMMC is somehow going to fail you during your next CPSR?

FEAR NOT – this presentation is for you!

Join us and let Mark Hijar, founder of ProcureLinx LLC, ease your mind as you enter the CY2021 federal business system audit season!

Mark and his colleagues at ProcureLinx have taken eight (8) contractors (ranging in size from <$100M – $10B+) successfully through the Strange New World of 100% remote purchasing system reviews since new quarantine protocols for CPSRs began in May 2020. This presentation will focus on quarantine-inspired updates to the purchasing system review process as well as the new areas of inquiry impacting the CPSR process.

In this program, attendees will learn about:

  • New protocols for Remote CPSRs

  • Working efficiently with Remote CPSR teams

  • Controlling your Data Call and Electronic Files

  • CMMC and CPSR

  • New Buy American Requirements (52.204 updates): Are they a part of the process?

  • Additional Focal Points for 2021 CPSRs
