CCH and Navigant Consulting Partner to Provide Government Contracts Training to U.S. Government Agencies and Government Contractors
Federal Contracts Training Center to Offer Two Unique Master’s Certificate Programs
(BETHESDA, MD. November 4, 2009) – CCH, a part of Wolters Kluwer Law & Business, a leading provider of research products and software solutions, and Navigant Consulting, Inc., a global management and litigation consulting firm have formed a strategic alliance to establish the Federal Contracts Training Center (“FCTC”). FCTC will offer a wide range of audio seminars and classroom instruction for professionals within the U.S. government and industry, drawing upon CCH’s respected published materials on government contracting and experts from Navigant Consulting’s Government Contractor Services practice.
“Over the next decade, there will be a significant demand for government contract training for both entry level and mid-level government acquisition professionals, prime contractors and subcontractors,” said Gregory A. Garrett, Managing Director, Navigant Consulting, Inc. “FCTC seminars will provide valuable, timely and cost-effective professional continuing education in the areas of government contract management, government contract cost accounting, cost estimating, contract administration and subcontract management. These skills are critical to ensure on-budget and on-time delivery of quality products and services to the U.S. Government.”
FCTC will offer two Master’s Certificate programs. The Masters Certificate Program in U.S. Government Contracting is designed for government and industry professionals, covering the federal acquisition regulatory process and the government contracting life-cycle. Topics will include requirements determination, solicitation planning, proposal preparation, pricing, contract negotiations, contract formation, contract administration, contract termination, and/or contract close-out.
“The Master’s Certificate in Cost Estimating, Cost Accounting and Compliance is an industry first and meets an urgent need,” Garrett said. “Today more than ever, expert knowledge in and application of cost estimating, government contract cost accounting and contract compliance are vital to the continued functioning of the U.S. government contracting environment.”
“We’re excited to be working with Navigant,” said Paul Gibson, CCH Vice President. “Gregory Garrett is one of the most respected figures in the field of government contracting and training and has successfully managed more than $30 billion worth of complex contracts and projects in both the U.S. government and industry. He has authored 14 books and published more than 80 articles on government contracting and taught or consulted with business professionals in more than forty countries. There’s absolutely no one better qualified than Gregg to take the lead in this exciting new initiative.”
The Federal Contracts Training Center will offer training programs across a variety of formats and forums including audio and web-based instruction, public open enrollment and on-site seminars. FCTC will offer one-day and two-day seminars covering hot topics such as: Time and Materials Contracts and Pricing; Cost Realism; Internal Controls Audit Planning Summary (ICAPS); Preparing for Contractor Purchasing System Reviews; Cost Estimating and Contract Pricing; and Managing Subcontracts. FCTC is an Educational Partner of the National Contract Management Association.
