Acquisition of Professional Services - CLP training sponsored by GSA
Attention all Federal Contracting Officers and Agency Program Managers!
 
 This training seminar covers the contracting issues raised by ordering agency Contracting Officers in procuring Professional Services from the GSA Schedules.  After defining the scope of the GSA Professional Services schedules, we will review the Request for Quotation (RFQ) and Task Order award processes, particularly the differences between FAR Subpart 8.4 and FAR Part 15 procedures.  The Schedule contract itself, including Schedule contract clauses, will be examined. We then explore how to use Contractor Teaming Agreements and Blanket Purchase Agreements for complex or recurring services.  This FAR-based training is tailored for those in the GS-1102 Contract Specialist/Officer series, agency Program Managers and others who generate service contract requirements, plan service contract acquisitions, and conduct market research for professional service procurements can also benefit.  Please note that we will make frequent reference to the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), and we assume some familiarity with elementary GSA Schedules program terminology and basic FAR-based ordering terminology/procedures. 
 
This training is certified for 5.0 Continuous Learning Points (CLPs), with an optional 1.0 CLP on How to Use GSA eTools.
 
Hope you can join us!  Please forward this invitation along to any others who may be interested in participating.
