As any government contractor will tell you, getting the contract award is only the beginning. Many issues may arise during the performance that can lead to unanticipated costs or delays. Contractors who wish to recoup their costs, or offset their delays, must familiarize themselves with the relevant portions of the FAR and the Contract Disputes Act (CDA). These statutes and regulations control not only how a contractor may perform a contract, but how they can seek compensation for unanticipated costs and delays, and the manner in which they must deal with a dispute against the agency owner.
In this webinar, experienced government contract attorney Maria Panichelli will walk you through the applicable laws, and explain how to use REAs and Claims to seek the contract adjustments you are entitled to.
This webinar will help you:
- Understand the differences between REAs and Claims;
- Identify the appropriate times to use REAs v. the appropriate times to use Claims;
- Familiarize yourself with common claim bases;
- Review the procedures involved in the dispute resolution process;
- Discuss strategies to counter common government defenses.
