Virginia Procurement Technical Assistance Program: Critical Considerations in Federal Subcontracting

March 19, 2018 - Webinar

1:00pm - 2:30pm EDT

Maria Panichelli and Robert Ruggieri are presenting an educational webinar for the Virginia Procurement Technical Assistance Program on federal subcontracts.

Critical Considerations in Federal Subcontracting
As many contractors know, the world of federal government contracting is unique. Subcontracting in this space can be a tricky business, for both prime contractors and subcontractors. In this webinar, Maria and Bob will cover the most critical federal subcontracting considerations, from the perspectives of both prime contractors and subcontractors. They will discuss the negotiation of subcontract clauses, including mandatory FAR flow-downs and other critical provisions including disputes and payment clauses. The presenters will also explain how to handle upstream claims against the owner, detailing how to navigate the pass-through claim process and the negotiation of liquidating agreements. Finally, this webinar will describe the unusual challenges and special protections offered to construction subcontractors in particular, as we walk you through the procedures – and common pitfalls - relating to Miller Act claims.
