Learn types of records that must be maintained, time frames for retention, and best practices for implementing an effective records retention policy.

Obtaining a government contract or grant can be a lucrative and beneficial endeavor. However, deals between private industry and governments are intensely regulated and create issues that are unique to public contract law. One of the many compliance issues faced by contractors is recordkeeping. As all contracts are subject to federal audits, contractors must follow specific record maintenance rules to ensure compatibility with the contract terms and to defend against allegations of improper performance. This topic will assist those responsible for records management or advising on such by providing an overview of records retention requirements in federal procurements and assistance awards. You will gain a greater understanding of the record keeping obligations of the government, its contractors, and grant recipients. Additionally, the topic will cover penalties for non-compliance and the government and public right to access records. We will also take a high level look at the changing landscape of federal cybersecurity and how it impacts contractor systems. You will be well-informed on the types of records to be maintained, the time frames for retention, the law and regulations specific to each group of public contract players, and tips and best practices for an effective and compliant records retention policy.
