The Contracting Education Academy at Georgia Tech is offering two courses in June 2015 that offer essential insights into the federal contracting process, from both a government and a contractor point-of-view.
- Contract Planning in the FAR – CON 090-2 – covers how the federal government plans acquisitions, conducts market research, describes agency needs, and sets priorities for the acquisition of commercial and non-developmental items. Students learn: the policies and procedures for acquisition planning; the policies pertaining to required and preferred sources of supplies and service; how to determine the appropriate type of contract, contracting technique, and terms and conditions; what socioeconomic programs apply; how to publicize a solicitation; and how to judge a contractor’s qualifications.

- Contracting Officer Representative and the Contingency Contracting Environment – COR 206/222 – provides a comprehensive review and instruction on the role and responsibilities of the Contracting Officer Representative (COR), including ethical situations and cultural differences a COR may experience while deployed in a contingency operation. Students learn how to: review contract terms and conditions; understand each party’s role and responsibility in contract administration; document and obtain approval for contract changes and modifications; monitor contract expenditures; conduct contract close-outs; and manage ethical and legal issues in the contingency contracting environment.
