On June 14, we presented a webinar titled “Frequently Asked Questions About Requests for Equitable Adjustment and Contract Disputes Act Claims.” The webinar featured some of the most common questions we encounter in the field regarding CDA claims and REAs, as well as a discussion of procedural, substantive, and business considerations that go into the decision to assert a claim or an REA.

The audience Q&A featured a remarkable 30 questions during the 1-hour webinar, so be on the lookout for a “sequel” Claims Recovery v2.0 webinar in the coming weeks, where we will address additional FAQs and new questions that attendees may submit in advance.

Finally, because part of the discussion focused on identifying and pursuing claims, attached here is a description of the Crowell & Moring Performance Review Offering, which describes available training and diagnostic reviews regarding recovery opportunities for clients in the government contracting industry.

Join us today for our webinar Building a Border Wall: Opportunities, Contractual Risks, and Business Considerations. The Trump administration published two contract solicitations for the design-build of a “border wall” between the U.S. and Mexico. The RFPs (linked here and here) contemplate a multiple-award, multiple-phase approach for acquiring prototypes and, eventually, full construction.  A team of Crowell & Moring government contracts and labor & employment attorneys will discuss key nuances of the solicitations, opportunities, and major contractual risks that may accompany the Trump administration’s large-scale border project.

On Wednesday, September 7th, 2016 at 12 PM Eastern, join us for a webinar titled “Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces” Final Rule and Guidance: What You Need to Know. During this 90-minute webinar, a team of Crowell & Moring government contracts and labor & employment attorneys will discuss how contractors bidding on contracts covered by the “Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces” Final Rule and Guidance will be required to disclose whether there have been any “administrative merits determination,” “arbitral award or decision,” or “civil judgment” – key terms defined by the DOL Guidance – rendered against the contractor for violations of 14 enumerated labor and employment laws. Under the rule, contracting officers are required to consider this information as part of the responsibility determination, potentially impacting a contractor’s eligibility for award. Starting on October 25th, 2016, the rule will be implemented in phases, and contractors and subcontractors should begin preparing for Day One Compliance.

Please join Crowell & Moring for a discussion of the following key areas:

  • Applicability and implementation of “Fair Pay Safe Workplaces”
  • The labor law violation disclosure process for contractors and subcontractors
  • The categories of violations that can trigger a negative responsibility finding
  • Mitigation of suspension and debarment risk
  • Potential Congressional action and legal challenges
  • What contractors should be doing to prepare for Day One Compliance

We hope you can join us as we discuss these issues and more during next week’s webinar. To register for this event, please click our RSVP link.
