Preparation is the key. Transparency and rigorous oversight means that contractors must be vigilant and conscientious of their contracts. Because of recent contracting abuses under GSA contracts, GSA has made it clear that it will do more pre- and postcontract audits and compliance reviews of GSA contractors. GSA contractors must anticipate that they will be subject to one or more audits or compliance reviews under their GSA contracts. Through this course you will learn how and why GSA and other federal agencies exercise their audit rights and how you can effectively prepare for and respond to those audits and compliance reviews.
