The sessions are developed by FEI’s Committee on Government Business, the team responsible for analyzing legislation and regulations affecting accounting standards and practices followed by businesses servicing the Federal sector.

“The Government Sector adds a second level of accounting practices, regulations, and standards to the already fundamental requirements financial executives must follow to be in compliance day to day,” explained Andrej Suskavcevic, CAE, President and CEO of FEI. “The FEI network has compiled a lineup of relevant, influential, and experienced leaders responsible for defining, analyzing, and enacting the regulations. Having access to these individuals as they unpack some of the more complex matters posed to the industry should prove invaluable to professionals working within government environments.”

Sponsored by Baker Tilly, Greenlight Technologies, and PwC, the Conference will include the following sessions:

  • Streamlined and Smarter: Government Contracting After Section 809
  • Current Technical Cost Accounting Standards Issues
  • Business System Regulations
  • Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Legal Panel

“Often, federal rules and regulations addressing accounting practices are ratified and yet it can take years to decipher their practical application and impact,” said Barbara Michael, Perspecta Inc.’s Vice President of Government Compliance and Chair of FEI’s Committee on Government Business. “Executives responsible for adhering to these requirements are most effective when engaging with and learning alongside colleagues facing the same challenges. Hence, we’ve strategically developed a one-day agenda addressing the more complex initiatives we’re asked to implement. The topics will be presented in digestible formats to encourage discussion and effective learning so that attendees can walk away with useful actionable tactics.”
