Join Morrison & Foerster’s Government Contracts Remote Learning Series as our group provides a monthly overview of the latest topics in government contracting. In each webinar, one or more attorneys from our group will explain the “why” and “how” of a particular legal problem, and lessons available from recent case decisions that inform how best to navigate it. The series will focus on issues that government contractors and their legal teams often face, tailored to the current landscape and circumstances.
Topics include constructive changes, export controls, bid protests, disputes, cybersecurity, key compliance issues, M&A transactions, and more.
We will provide a CLE certificate of attendance whenever possible and other materials to use in seeking continuing education credits.
Jay DeVecchio will start the series with a presentation entitled “Managing Constructive Changes: Protecting the Bottom Line When the Customer Alters Performance.” Jay will offer a different and practical perspective on changes, based on long experience with the tension between the government’s pressures to change your work and contractors’ desires to keep the customer satisfied. All contractors should invest in understanding the “Changes” clause, especially as a compliance or risk reduction issue.
Register here. CLE credit is pending in CA, NY, and VA.
Jay will analyze the legal and risk management aspects of this clause, how to avoid potential pitfalls, and why it should be a part of your personnel-training toolkit. Covered areas will include:
- Overview of How and Why Changes Happen
- Educating Program Employees to Recognize and Respond To Changes
- Improving Your Position On Contract Interpretation
- Issues Surrounding Equitable Adjustments
