Obermayer is excited to continue its “GovCon Examiner Live” webinar series in 2021. Over the course of the next 12 months, our experienced government contracting attorneys Maria Panichelli and Michael Richard will bring their popular GovCon Examiner blog to life with legal updates and practical tips for your business.
After you’ve won the contract award, what comes next? As any Federal contractor will tell you, the contract award is only the beginning — performance presents a whole new series of challenges. Federal government contracts are governed by a complex web of statutes and regulations. These laws 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. Getting paid for issues that arise during performance requires a detailed understanding of the applicable laws and processes and, more specifically, a thorough understanding of the two critical tools for seeking compensation: REAs and Claims.
In this webinar, experienced government contracting attorneys Maria Panichelli and Michael Richard will provide a primer on Requests for Equitable Adjustment (REAs), explaining how contractors can use REAs to seek an increase to the price or duration of their federal contracts. Contract Disputes Act claims will also be discussed, with a specific focus on the differences between REAs and claims, and an explanation concerning when each strategy is more appropriate. Finally, attendees will learn about the CDA claims appeal and litigation process, as well as common government defenses, and subcontractor pass-through claims. Sign up today to learn about the most important tools to get you paid!
