FAR, or Federal Acquisition Regulation, is the basis for doing business with the government. The Federal Acquisition Regulations System is established for the codification and publication of uniform policies and procedures for acquisition by all executive agencies.

 

The Federal Acquisition Regulations System consists of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), which is the primary document, and agency acquisition regulations that implement or supplement the FAR. The vision for the Federal Acquisition System is to deliver on a timely basis the best value product or service to the customer, while maintaining the public's trust and fulfilling public policy objectives.

How can CPM help?

02

What is the Truth In Negotiations Act (TINA) and when is it required?

The Truth in Negotiations Act (TINA) (10 U.S.C. 2306a and 41 U.S.C. chapter 35) requires offerors to submit current accurate and complete certified cost or pricing data when a procurement exceeds the (TINA) threshold of $700,000 and none of the exceptions to certified cost or pricing data requirements applies.

 

Exceptions to certified cost and pricing data include; existence of adequate price competition, prices that are set by law or regulation, commercial Items, or a waiver granted by the head of the contracting activity for the Government agency.

 

The purpose of these statutes is to put the Government on equal footing with contractors when negotiating non-competitive, non-commercial, sole-source contracts by giving the Government access to the same pricing information known to the contractor. Failure to provide current, accurate, and complete, certified cost or pricing data may create liability for defective pricing.

03

How are FAR 15 and TINA satisfied?

TINA is satisfied when one or more of the following criteria are met:  adequate price competition exists, prices are set by law or regulation, items or services are supported as commercial, the head of the contracting activity for the Government agency grants a waiver, or certified cost and pricing data is analyzed through a Cost Analysis Report or DCAA / DCMA Full Assist Audit. See the "How We Can Help" page for more information.

 

08

Where is CPM located?

CPM is headquartered in Huntsville, AL and has representatives located in Illinois, Kansas, California, Tennessee, and Virginia. Additionally, CPM has the ability to work virtually and is willing to travel to anywhere to meet our customer's demands.  

04

What is Defective Pricing?

Defective pricing is when inaccurate cost and pricing data has been certified by a contractor to be current, accurate, and complete at the time of final agreement on price. If a contractor fails to comply with TINA and pricing is found to be defective, the U.S. Government has the right to a price adjustment consisting of any overpayment, interest and penalties.
