On June 21, Cohen Seglias partner Maria Panichelli presented the Govology webinar “Essential Considerations in Federal Subcontracting.”
In this webcast, Maria covered the essential issues that prime contractors and subcontractors must keep in mind when negotiating and drafting subcontracts for use on federal projects. She discussed the negotiation of subcontract clauses, including mandatory FAR flow-downs and other critical provisions including disputes and payment clauses. Maria also explained 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 described the unique 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.
