Crowell & Moring is hosting Government Contracts 101 in our Washington, D.C., office on Thursday, October 26, 2017. This all-day event will last from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at 1001 Pennsylvania Ave, N.W., and provide an overview of the full scope of issues that government contractors face on a daily basis. We will cover FAR, key statutes and regulations, the bid and proposal process, protests, disputes, cyber requirements, changes, claims, key compliance issues, suspension/debarment, and costs. The course is designed for those attorneys and business personnel that may be new to government contracting and for those that may need a “refresher.”
Training is foundational to our business, and it is a part of our Firm’s DNA. Our founding partners regularly provided government contracts training not just for business development purposes, but also out of a sense of duty to the profession.
Government contracting is hard. The rules and regulations can be counter-intuitive. And perfectly acceptable commercial business practices can be criminal violations in the government contracts setting. Industry members deserve every opportunity to learn the rules of the road so they can thrive.
Furthermore, in the current fiscal environment budget pressures can hit government contractors hard. Training funds can be hard to find. As a Chambers Band-One rated government contracts practice with more than 60 lawyers working day-in and day-out in the trenches of our industry, we feel an obligation to our profession to provide this foundational training, free of charge, to our clients and to any interested industry member who desires this knowledge. Join us. Come, learn, network with your peers, and enjoy a day with us.
We hope you can join us.
Registration is available here for industry-members interested in attending.
