Many government contractors surprising learn the easiest part of government contracting was actually obtaining their contract—and even that was an arduous process.  But nothing can be more complicated and fraught with risk than the challenge of administering your contract.  There are myriad compliance issues, deliverables, change orders/modifications, reporting requirements.  Failure to provide stellar contract administration can result in many unintended consequences which could result in a poor rating in the Contracting Performance Assessment System (CPARS), affecting the contractor’s ability to receive future contract awards.  Depending on how egregious non-compliance is could ultimately lead to termination of the contract for cause/default, and potentially result in the contractor’s suspension and debarment from doing business with the Federal government.

This fast-paced two-day course focuses on increasing contract compliance while reducing contractor risk.  The class addresses tackling the most complex issues in Federal contract administration including bilateral and unilateral modifications/change orders, cure notices, show cause notices, the Disputes Statute, time extensions, delay and impact claims, requests for equitable adjustment, subcontracting requirements, post-award size status changes, novation agreements, flow-down requirements, payment issues, and much more. Enhance your skills with our hands-on workshop.
