The federal government is unlike commercial companies in the way it acquires products and services. The government is regulated by a complex set of rules, known as Federal Acquisition Regulations, or FAR.
The Federal Acquisition Process
- Need recognition and acquisition planning
- Contract Formation
- Contract administration
FAR regulates the activities of government personnel in carrying out the above process. That is why you must understand these complex government methods, rules, requirements, and regulations before you ever hope to successfully acquire a government contract.
Understanding Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR)
Before submitting a proposal and jumping into the realm of government contracting, it is important to familiarize yourself with FAR, which was established to help standardize the federal procurement process. FAR was issued as part of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy Act of 1974, and is codified in Title 48 of the United States Code of Federal Regulations.
Most federal government agencies and their contractors are required to comply with FAR, with the exceptions of the CIA, U.S. Postal Service, and FAA, which all have their own procurement regulations.
