Time 61 minutes
Difficulty Beginner

Contracting with the federal government requires understanding all the principles of commercial contracting... and then some. Federal government contracts are highly-regulated and typically one-sided, and the consequences of failing to understand and comply with applicable regulations and contract provisions can include losing money, losing one's business, and even going to jail.

This one-hour webinar, presented by Shlomo D. Katz of Brown Rudnick LLP, will take a high level look at many of the provisions that make federal contracts unique. Attending this webinar should help an attorney spot many issues that his government contractor-clients will want to take a closer look at.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss many of the provisions that make federal contracts unique, with a close examination of the Federal Acquisition Regulation
  2. Develop best practices for complying with applicable regulations and contract provisions
  3. Successfully navigate some of the most likely issues you’ll encounter in government contracting such as procurement integrity, the contractor code of ethics, and bid protests
