Federal government contractors are subject to immensely complex legal requirements, which govern how a company must perform its contract and deal with issues that arise during performance. Navigating these regulations while preserving your rights – and also staying on good terms with the government customer – can be extremely challenging.

Federal construction contracts, in particular, often involve any number of performance challenges, all of which are governed by specific FAR clauses. Understanding these provisions can make all the difference between a successful project and a disaster. A contractor who truly understands the FAR, and the obligations it imposes, can often avoid conflict with the agency, and resolve issues before they turn into disputes.

In this webinar, experienced government contracting attorney Maria Panichelli of Obermayer Rebmann Maxwell & Hippel will discuss several issues commonly arising in construction contracts, and the FAR clauses that govern these issues. Using real-life examples, Maria will walk attendees through how to deal with issues such as Changes, Differing Site Conditions, Defective Specifications, Delays and Suspensions, while complying with the FAR, and avoiding conflict with the government.

In this webinar, attendees will learn how to:

  • Identify “constructive” or implied changes
  • Understand and comply with notice requirements
  • Distinguish between types of differing site conditions
  • Understand the difference between design and performance specifications
  • Differentiate between delay, disruption, and inefficiency, acceleration and suspension
