If you are in any way involved with Government contracting you undoubtedly know how crucial, and often difficult, frustrating and complicated a contract audit can be. To avoid audit problems, it is important to understand how Government audits and reviews are performed, what to expect, how to prepare and how to respond. It is equally important to know how to resolve audit issues both before and after a contracting officer makes a final decision. In most instances, the best that can happen is that nothing will happen.  No changes, no lost costs. And that outcome is far more likely if. and here is the big "if," you know what an audit involves, how it is conducted, how to prepare for it and how to conduct yourself.

To accomplish this, we have assembled a distinguished, experienced Course Faculty who have developed this specially tailored course based on their years of field experience as employees of the Federal Government and as professional practitioners. Dealing with the DCAA and DCMA on a regular, daily basis, the Faculty has designed a course of practical, pragmatic value.  No theories, no general philosophies.  Just exhaustively learned, hard edged facts, guidance and solutions.

Each attendee will receive a comprehensive Manual of materials prepared exclusively for the program by the Course Faculty.
