No Matter how FAR You Go

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) made history by releasing the first ever free iBook version of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). Now a free Kindle version of the FAR is available too, making it simpler than ever for acquisition professionals and business owners to always have access to the complex rules governing the federal government’s purchasing process - even when mobile service is knocked out by a hurricane, earthquake, or other natural disaster. For more information on how to get a free copy of the FAR on iBook or Kindle, click here.
