Contracting with the federal government can be expensive and burdensome. However, in 1995, Congress passed the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act which simplified procedures and contract requirements for the procurement of commercial items. This exception to the Truth in Negotiations Act provides significant relief by reducing bureaucracy, oversight and administration by using commercial items. Unfortunately, over the past two decades, many agencies are leaning back to the onerous processes and oversight as hurdles are being created that block attempts to use commercial item acquisition and make the significant benefits harder to realize.
This virtual class will provide insight into the first step in the process for using commercial item acquisition – the creation of a commercial item determination – aka the “CID”. Our instructors will review current guidance and help set out expectations for preparing and evaluating CIDs. Whether you are buying or selling commercial items, this is your opportunity to learn practical approaches to maximize the use of commercial item acquisition procedures and bypass the burden associated with cost justified pricing administration.
