Contract Closeout Virtual Class

May 23 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:30pm on Tuesday, repeating until May 30, 2017




The Contract Closeout training will now be available virtually with live instruction in three 1.5 hour sessions over a period of 3 weekly sessions.

Contract closeout is a critical, but often forgotten, piece of the Contract process. This virtual class will focus on what contractors need to move the close out process through to completion, efficiently and effectively. Achieving closeout will ensure final payments are made, audit issues are concluded, past performance evaluations are submitted and any open issues are resolved. Timely close out efforts result in reduced contract administration and ensure a greater likelihood that contractors still have not only the institutional memory but all the documentation necessary to achieve a favorable contract close out.

Learning Objectives

  • Analyze the basic steps needed to close out a contract or task/delivery order and tips about how to accomplish them to the mutual benefit of both contractor and agency alike;
  • Identify the differences in the close out process depending upon the type of contract awarded;
  • Explain when a contract or task order can be closed without an audit and when an audit is needed;
  • Explain the importance of new FAR compliance requirements;
  • Describe ways to organize the information/materials needed for close out during contract performance to avoid unnecessary delays.
  • Discuss a real life closeout scenario situation to familiarize attendees with the process and the competing considerations.
