The Conference targets financial professionals who work with federal government entities and professionals in government who need to stay current on legal issues and regulatory requirements effecting government contracting. The sessions are developed by FEI’s Committee on Government Business, the team responsible for analyzing legislation and regulations affecting accounting standards and practices followed by businesses servicing the Federal sector. 

“At FEI, we recognize that the unique opportunities and risks facing financial professionals within the government sector require a dedicated forum for learning and discussion,” explained Andrej Suskavcevic, CAE, President and CEO of FEI. “Our Committee on Government Business has worked to put together a meaningful, timely agenda to tackle these issues in an intimate and interactive way. Based on that effort, we trust that attendees will find the conference topics invaluable.” 

The Conference on Government Business is made possible through the support of the Financial Education & Research Foundation (FERF), and the event’s sponsors, Baker Tilly and PwC. The Conference will include the following sessions:

  • The Legality of Cost and Audit
  • Cyber Security and the Supply Chain
  • Cost Sharing and Other Transaction Agreements (OTAs)
  • Internal/External Restructuring Costs Roundtable

“Understanding the federal rules and regulations addressing accounting practices is more complex for the financial professionals dealing with business working with government agencies,” said Barbara Michael, Perspecta Inc.’s Vice President of Government Compliance and Chair of FEI’s Committee on Government Business. “It takes constant education and discussion with other industry professionals to navigate new regulations and develop and implement realistic solutions. We have developed a forum that presents these topics in a format that encourages a full understanding of each issue and helps to outline a clear path to solutions.”
