Mr. Carter brings extensive experience in the federal acquisition process and practical application of the acquisition regulations, contractor business systems compliance, DCMA processes and procedures, proposal analysis and evaluation, cost modeling and estimating, forward pricing rate agreements (FPRA), and training. Beyond his duties as a DCMA CPSR procurement analyst, he was also responsible for creating critical tools for DCMA, some of which were adopted by the entire CPSR Group for use during purchasing system reviews and another that was adopted by all Administrative Contracting Officers (ACO) to support their annual surveillance of contractor purchasing systems responsibilities.
