Time: 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM ET

Join BDO USA and Morgan Lewis for a virtual roundtable to discuss practical suggestions for what GSA Schedule contractors should do to operationalize TDR requirements in their organizations – even if they haven’t “opted in” to the program – and leverage the information to better compete in the Schedules marketplace.

Additionally, the roundtable will discuss how Escobar affects contractors’ efforts to build and maintain effective reporting systems for their pricing and sales data.



We’ll tackle the following questions during the roundtable:
  • What data is required to support TDR reporting?
  • What are the typical system challenges in obtaining and understanding the data?
  • What should contractors be doing now?
  • What insights can be gained from mining this data?
  • What gaps and possible problem areas exist for contractors?
  • What does the potential landscape for FCA liability look like in the wake of Escobar?
