Demystifying Federal Contract Codes
Join us for this special edition of Coffee & Contracting presented by Go-To-Guy Timberlake!
Imagine learning you were wrong. Okay, not actually you, but the information you had come to rely on for making decisions. What if the understanding you had developed of “how things worked” was flawed? This session is about flawed information and beliefs that limit the ability of people and companies in federal contracting from achieving clarity. This limitation unnecessarily adds time and money to processes leveraged by companies throughout federal contracting, and prevents them from seeing a clear and truthful picture about opportunities.
During this session attendees will be presented with information and evidence to help them:
- Understand what a NAICS Code is and how it is used by Government and Industry
- Understand what a PSC Code is and how it is used by Government and Industry
- Why PSC Codes are the basis of the Better Buying Power (DoD) and Category Management (Governmentwide) acquisition policies, and what that means to Industry
