About the Program

Program Managers working with Federal Government must work within the Federal Acquisition Regulations affectionately known as the FAR. This training will review common FAR clauses that Program Managers (PMs) need to be aware of when supporting Federal contracts and customers.

This includes:
• FAR clauses 52.232-20, Limitation of Cost and 52.232-22, Limitation of Funds and their relation to the Anti-deficiency Act (ADA)
• FAR clause 52.215-22, Limitation on Pass-Through Charges, and how it potentially impacts the amount of work that can be assigned to subcontracts and vendors
• FAR clause 52.244-2, Subcontracts, and Consent to Subcontract requirements
• FAR clause 52.232-25, Prompt Payment, and its impact on invoicing and payment
