The Desktop Guide to FAR Essentials covers the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)—the source of the uniform policies and procedures for acquisition by all U.S. federal government agencies. The FAR is thousands of pages long and deeply complex. The Desktop Guide condenses and summarizes 28 of the most essential topics of the FAR, making it a must-have resource for all government and industry contract management professionals.
Topics in the Desktop Guide are organized under six major headings:
- Acquisition Planning,
- Contracting Methods and Types,
- Socioeconomic Programs,
- General Contracting Requirements, and
- Contract Management.
