Yes. As significant recipients of federally funded grants and contracts, colleges and universities are feeling the impact of the current environment of federal budget uncertainty – primarily sequestration, continuing resolutions, redirection of funds, and other austerity measures. To explain how these issues impact colleges and universities, Crowell & Moring hosted a webinar focusing on the most common impacts of the budget uncertainty, such as delays, changes, conflicting direction from the government, terminations of programs, and non-renewal of contracts. We provided practical tips that colleges and universities can deploy to protect their interests and minimize risks. During our webinar, we explored these complex issues from several different angles, including compliance risks, financial risks, employment law implications, procurement, contract negotiation, and protecting entitlement in the event that your programs end up at risk.
