WEBINAR – REAs and CDA Claims: Key Strategies in Seeking Compensation

Event Date: 2/16/2016 - 2/16/2016


Edward DeLisle and Maria Panichelli, federal government contracting experts, lead this Government Contracting Institute webinar – REAs and CDA Claims: Key Strategies in Seeking Compensation.  After you’ve secured your Federal government contract award, what comes next? As any Federal contractor will tell you, the contract award is only the beginning. The FAR and its supplementary regulations impose a host of obligations on contractors, and can impact the ways in which a contractor performs a contract. These rules and regulations also dictate the ways in which those contractors can seek compensation for unanticipated costs incurred on the job. In this webinar, we explore Requests for Equitable Adjustment, Claims, and the differences between the two. As we walk you through the Contract Disputes Act process, you will also learn how to maximize your chance of success when making claims against the Federal government.
