This advanced course is designed to cover the primary high risk areas of Schedule Contracting, with a special focus on compliance, audits, and risk avoidance. Detailed discussions of the Price Reductions Clause, the Industrial Funding Fee, and the Trade Agreements Act will serve as the vehicles to examine all three subject areas. The course will provide practical advice on how to recognize the benefits of contracting with the Federal Government while minimizing the risks by

Making a reasonable and rational bid/no-bid decision at the outset
Negotiating a realistic and flexible contract as the primary means of ensuring future compliance and minimizing future risk
Implementing a functioning internal compliance program, and
Dealing with compliance issues as they arise during contract performance, especially in the context of the Price Reductions Clause as it relates to pricing and discounting to commercial customers.
The GSA Multi Award Schedule may be the most used, yet least understood, Government procurement vehicle available. While many billions of dollars are spent on Schedule purchases annually, little guidance exists that explains and simplifies the world of Schedule contracting.

The course will benefit newcomers and veterans; as well as contract holders, participating dealers, and manufacturers alike.

The course includes a special presentation by former GSA FSS Assistant Commissioner for Acquisition, Carolyn Alston. Additionally, the Washington, D.C., session of this course will feature special presentations by one or more of the following professionals: John W. Chierichella, Anne B. Perry, Louis Victorino, and Larry Allen.

Additionally, the new edition of the popular book, Multiple Award Schedule Contracting, by John W. Chierichella and Jonathan S. Aronie, will serve as the text for the course and will be provided to all participants. Attorneys Chierichella and Aronie practice law in the Washington, D.C. offices of Sheppard, Mullin, Richter and Hampton LLP.
