Post-Conference Workshop:


Procurement Standards Deep Dive:

Uniform Guidance contains certain standards with which all Federal grant recipients (except states) are required to comply when acquiring property or services with Federal funds. These requirements, termed the “Procurement Standards,” are set forth at 2 CFR 200.317 through 200.326 and focus primarily on facilitating competition in procurement. The Office of Management and Budget announced in the Federal Register on May 17, 2017, that the grace period for implementation of the Procurement Standards will be extended one additional fiscal year for non-Federal entities. This update extends the grace period through December 25, 2017. All non-Federal entities must have a compliant procurement system in operation for fiscal years beginning on or after December 26, 2017.

Join us for a post-conference workshop that focuses on specific procurement techniques and what organizations must do to remain compliant. We will address the following topics:

• Elements of Full and Open Competition

• Pre-Procurement Review Process
• Roles and Responsibilities of Key Individuals
