Nov. 14, 2012 - PRLog -- On November 15, 2012 @ 1:30 p.m. EST Ascot Associates will interview Sunflower subject matter experts regarding one of the newest challenges facing government contractors doing business with the Department of Defense which is mitigating risk under the new DFARs 252.242-7005 "Business Systems Rule".  This clause puts contractors at risk for losing 5% or even 10% of their payments if one or more of their six business systems are not deemed adequate, including their Material Management Accounting System (252.242-7004) and their Property Management System (252.245-7003).

Ascot Associates is hosting this complimentary 30-minute briefing, "Property and the Business Systems Rule" describing the requirements and risks that contractors now face with regards to the property and material on their Contracts. Along with the experts from Sunflower Systems, the webinar will explain the steps contractors can take to make sure their Property Management system and MMAS contain the data elements, policies and procedures required under these new contract clauses. Following this session, participants will have a clear understanding of what the government will be looking for, what policies and procedures you should have in place to insure your organization is not at risk for these payment withholdings, and how industry leading solutions can be leveraged to avoid potentially devastating penalties.
