Interpreting Government Contracts

OnDemand Webinar (90 minutes)

Understand the unique framework of laws, regulations, and rules of interpretation when dealing with government contracts.Unlike private contracts in a commercial setting, public contracts between your business and the Federal government exist within a unique framework of laws, regulations, and rules of interpretation. Without a detailed understanding of how government contracts are formed and administered, business owners are at risk of losing out on contract awards or dealing with the often severe consequences of unsuccessful performance. This material provides a comprehensive overview of the general rules of contract interpretation when dealing with the Federal government. We will cover topics including solicitation and proposal management, performance requirements, and dispute resolution. By understanding the essential framework of government contracts, you will be positioned to proactively to protect yourself and your business in future procurements.
