The Federal Acquisition Institute (FAI) released a “Smart Guide” for government contracting officials on November 9, 2015.
The Guide features 51 flow charts and decision trees associated with the federal acquisition process, grouped into two primary content areas: Contract Formation and Contract Administration.
In each of the sections, there are:
- Tasks, Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) references, and additional helpful information,
- Flow charts and decision trees for each activity to visually demonstrate the tasks, and
- Links to relevant FAI and Defense Acquisition University (DAU) training courses.
The Contracting Education Academy at Georgia Tech is an equivalency training provider for both DAU and FAI course work.
