Webinar: Cost Accounting Standards (“CAS”): When it Applies and How to Prepare for Impact

When:  Apr 8, 2021 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (ET)
The Cost Accounting Standards (CAS) are a series of accounting rules applicable to certain cost reimbursement contracts and contractors. CAS compliance can sometimes feel like a major hurdle, especially for small and mid-size businesses who are new to federal acquisition.  This webinar will get right down to CAS basics, examining when CAS applies and when a contractor (or contract) is or is not exempt.  The presenter will also discuss how CAS is administered and how to prepare for some of the major impacts CAS has on covered contractors.
