Successful government contracting requires a precise understanding of contract terminology, as well as a firm grasp of current federal regulations and relevant case law. A unique resource among government contracting books, this quick-reference guide saves you time and strengthens your procurement program, by providing ready definitions for more than 1500 federal contracting terms, phrases and acronyms used in government procurement.

Completely up-to-date terminology reflects statutory and regulatory changes, including some 400 terms relating directly to government contract law, including the rules and procedures mandated by the federal government under the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act (FASA) of 1994, the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996, and the revisions to FAR Part 15.

Written by noted government contracting experts, The Government Contracts Reference Book provides clear explanations of both general and agency-specific federal contracting terms from the Department of Defense, General Services Administration, Department of Energy, NASA and others followed by a summary of where the term is used in the statutes or regulations dealing with the procurement process. Organized in an easy-to-use alphabetical format and fully cross-referenced, this essential resource to today’s government contract terminology will help you procure goods and services efficiently and with confidence.
