(Recorded Webinar) Federal Procurement Standards
Based upon straight-forward principles of competition and transparency, the federal procurement standards are one of the areas of the federal grant management regulations that contains numerous specific rules and remains an area of compliance focus for auditors and agency reviewers. In this webinar, Partner Scott S. Sheffler will concisely address procurement considerations, building from the underlying legal principles to the key specific regulatory requirements. Mr. Sheffler will address competition requirements (including sole source justifications); regulatory options for requests for proposals, sealed bids, or simplified procedures; preferences for small and disadvantaged businesses and domestic sources; and the still relatively new limitations on purchases of certain telecommunications equipment and services from Huawei Technology Company and certain other entities. This webinar is designed to tie the various requirements together into a logical and systemic whole to promote not just compliance, but also efficient and repeatable systems.
