2023 Year End Forum DCAA/DCMA Industry Day
November 1-2, 2023

This two day conference will address the most recent government enforcement actions and emerging issues related to Federal government contracting compliance, finance, and regulations. This will also include keynotes from senior agency leaders to discuss the state of refocused efforts within their respective organizations, and the future landscape of regulatory compliance in our industry.

Leaders from DCAA, DCMA and DOJ, along with regulatory compliance and legal experts, will panel and explore the latest developments in the government contracts environment. This will include our experts covering recent case law, regulatory changes, cost or pricing issues, enforcement actions affecting the industrial base, business system focus areas by the respective agencies, and supply chain resilience.  This program will also cover new perspectives on agency transitions, and the state of the regulatory landscape moving into 2024 considering the in-process 2024 National Defense Authorization Act.

This interactive and intensive conference is intended for professionals from large, medium and small government contractors, federal agencies, and non-profits.  Specifically, this event is designed primarily for CFOs/CEOs/Presidents; leaders of Finance, Accounting, Compliance, Contracts, Business Development, and Supply Chain departments; and legal professionals.

Day 1 is designed to provide an update on the federal regulatory and government contracting environment moving into 2024.  We will review recent court cases shaping the regulatory landscape, along with updates on pricing/inflation and other areas of particular interest and focus of the DCMA.
