Topic Background:

The US federal government is the largest buyer of goods and services across the world. They make purchases through the federal procurement process, which is through government contracts. However, before attempting to do business with the government, organizations need to have strong knowledge of the regulations (rules and laws) that govern how the government makes its purchases. The main set of federal regulations that organizations should know is the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). FAR is what all of the federal executive agencies comply with in the acquisition of products and services. FAR ensures that these agencies have a standard way of purchasing products and services and that it is done fairly. FAR also helps organizations that do business with the government understand what they need to do in order to bid on contracts and manage contracts after winning them. Basically, it also explains the responsibilities of the organizations that want to or already do business with the government. There are 53 parts of the FAR.
