Webinar Series: The Straight "As" of Accounting System Reviews

Unlike some other business systems, the requirement to have an adequate accounting system is driven by type of contract and/or proposal not necessarily by contract size or business size. Cost reimbursable, incentive type, time and materials, labor hour, and of course cost accounting standards covered contracts all require a contracting officer to make a determination about the contractor's accounting system. However, there has been ambiguity around what is meant by an adequate, acceptable, and/or approved system that we will help alleviate here.

Participants will learn tips, skills, and facts to improve their compliance awareness, productivity, and efficiency. They will learn to understand the differences and meaning of adequate, acceptable, and approved when they encounter them in solicitations and awards. They will also learn about key risk areas and some best practices when setting up or selecting an accounting system to be sufficient for award.
