Seminar
10.21.11
Renaissance Downtown Chicago Hotel

As an independent agency exempt from most federal procurement laws and regulations, doing business with the U.S. Postal Service is unique from contracting with other federal agencies and commercial entities.

Topics Include:

  • Latest changes to USPS purchasing policies and rules
  • Impact of USPS's financial crisis on suppliers
  • Stricter conditions on noncompetitive procurements
  • Key contract administration problem areas and how to solve them
  • Identifying and responding to changes
  • Contract modifications and claims process

Who Should Attend
This full-day seminar is designed for companies that have, or intend to bid on, a Postal Service contract or subcontract. Anyone who is responsible for the success of your company's postal contracts will benefit from this seminar.
