Federal contracting officers have a large array of contract types that they can use at their discretion to fulfill their agency’s unique mission. Each contract type imposes different requirements on contractors due to varying levels of risk the government is willing to bear.

So how does this affect you?

The type of contract will affect how you get paid, how much it will cost you to stay compliant and meet administrative requirements, and how much oversight you can expect from the government.

In this webinar, Scott Cook, CFCM, ICCM-F, will explain the different types of contracts, why they exist, and the benefits and pitfalls of each type. This informative session will help you make better judgments about the profitability of various contract opportunities and what it takes to perform on a specific contract while staying compliant.

Target Audience: Contractors pursuing opportunities in the Federal marketplace
