Tysons Corner, VA (PRWEB) June 19, 2014
Management Concepts Inc., the nation’s premier provider of professional development, performance improvement, and talent management solutions for the public sector, today announced that Federal Acquisition Institute (FAI) has verified that Management Concepts FCN 190: FAR Fundamentals course meets the requirements for delivery of the new Federal Acquisition Certification – Contracting (FAC-C) Level I certification requirements.
During this two-week FAR immersion course, students gain a fundamental understanding of the basic policies and procedures for acquisition planning, source selection, and contract administration. Students work through realistic, scenario-based problems that will enable them, upon completion, to locate and understand the relevant regulations, guidance, provisions and clauses that govern the government contracting process.
FCN 190: FAR Fundamentals was recently added as a requirement of the Refreshed FAC-C(R) program issued by Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP). OFPP sought this revision to enhance parity between civilian and defense contracting certification training requirements.
As a valued training partner to the acquisition community for more than 40 years, Management Concepts is positioned to support the transition of the civilian agency workforce to the revised curriculum. During this transition period, the company will continue to offer the legacy FAC-C as well as the Refreshed FAC-C(R) curriculum.
