On Wednesday, January 12, 2011, from 2:00 – 3:30 pm EST, please join us for a webinar, “What Will the New Year Bring? Top Headlines, Headaches, and Legal Developments to Watch in 2011.” In 2010, government contractors witnessed a host of legal developments spurred by new transparency initiatives, a heightened emphasis on ethics and compliance, stepped-up enforcement actions, and an exploding bid protest docket. As we turn the page to 2011, there are many open questions swirling around for government contractors:
- What will the composition of the new Congress mean for government contractors?
- Will the pendulum swing toward a new preference for in-sourcing?
- Where will DOJ and IGs be focusing their enforcement efforts?
- Will we see an end to GAO’s jurisdiction to hear task order protests?
- What do the new proposed DoD data rights regulations mean for protecting intellectual property?
Join Crowell & Moring’s government contracts attorneys for a special webinar that examines the answers to these questions and many more. We invite you to participate in a discussion of what we believe are likely to be many of the key issues facing contractors in 2011, including topics such as GSA Schedule, bid protests, the legislative and political climate, data rights, OFCCP, cost issues, DCAA, compliance & ethics, international, and small business. It will be a lively conversation among some of the most experienced attorneys in the field, and we hope you can make it. Click here to register.
