Need to know the role of a Contracting Officer Representative? And how about contract formation — exactly how does the government put together its contracts?
Whether you are a member of the government’s acquisition team — or a contractor navigating the government’s acquisition process — you need to know the answer to these questions.
Fortunately, The Contracting Education Academy at Georgia Tech provides answers to these questions — and many more — in two popular classes in June.
The Contracting Officer’s Representative course (COR 222), coupled with the Contingency Contracting Environment class (COR 206), provides a comprehensive review and detailed instruction on the role, responsibilities, authority, and limitations of authority of the federal government’s Contracting Officer Representative (COR). Students learn the fundamentals of contracting regulations, types, phases, and other elements of contract administration. Students are also coached on the ethical and legal factors that impact COR responsibilities in the normal course of business and in the Contingency Contracting Environment.
The Contract Formation in the FAR course (CON 090-3) is the third of four modules from CON 090 – Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Fundamentals. It explores the simplified acquisition process, the sealed bidding process, contracts entered into on the basis of both competitive and noncompetitive negotiated arrangements, the required and preferred sources of supplies and services, what must be done to ensure competition, the policies for policies and procedures for pricing negotiated contracts and contract modifications, as well as the policies and procedures for filing bid protests.
Both courses consist of limited lecture, and are heavily exercise-based. Students get the opportunity to learn the Federal Acquisition Regulation by working through many real-life scenarios. Students also are given access to many exclusive on-line resources.
The Contracting Education Academy at Georgia Tech is an approved equivalency training provider to the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) and provides continuing education training to Acquisition and Government Contracting professionals as well as to business professionals working for government contractors or pursuing opportunities in the federal contracting arena.
