The Contractor Business Analysis Repository (CBAR) is an electronic tool that was created to provide greater awareness to contracts administered by the DCMA on behalf of the DoD. As a contracting professional, this can be a highly valuable tool for you and your organization – but you need to understand what it is and how to utilize it to its greatest potential.  This session will give insight into (1) the purpose of CBAR, (2) when records are created in CBAR, (3) the types of ACO and PCO information in CBAR, (4) security rules for accessing CBAR and protecting the data, and (5) a look at the system.

Mike Paulini is the Director of the Data Analysis, Training and Recruitment Group in the DCMA Cost and Pricing Center, located in Arlington Heights, IL.  The Group is responsible for developing and presenting training to DCMA's price/cost analysts, cost monitors, and ACOs in areas related to price and cost analysis.  He periodically meets with DCMA’s Senior Leadership and DoD’s Senior Acquisition Officials to discuss contract pricing, negotiation, and financing policies.  He also participates in developing new or revised DCMA policies related to pricing and negotiation, indirect expenses, business systems, and cost accounting standards administration.

Mike is DCMA's program manager for the Contract Business Analysis Repository (CBAR) database. CBAR is a Department of Defense Acquisition Enterprise system in which DCMA was tasked to develop and maintain on behalf of DoD. He works with the Director of Defense Pricing (Mr. Shay Assad) and the Director of the Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy Office (Mr. Richard Ginman) to establish the current and future requirements of CBAR.

He has 37 years’ experience in the areas of price and cost analysis and contract management -- all with DCMA. He is a member of NCMA, and an NCMA Fellow and CPCM recipient.

 

Participants will earn 2.0 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) hours for attending this training session.
