    Does the APTW replace the post award conference ? Does it apply to all contract types, specifically FFP?


    Answer

    The workshops recommended in the USD(AT&L) Use of Acquisition Program Transition Workshops (APTWs) memorandum of Apr 1, 2011 do not replace anything required in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR).  Essentially, the APTW is an expanded post award conference and a condensed approach to establishing a joint understanding of the contract. This workshop fits into the latitude the Contracting Officer has in defining the post award activities per the FAR.  The APTW not only applies to a contract award but also where there may be significant personnel turnover, Post Nunn-McCurdy certifications, or other programmatic requirements with  potential cost implications.
