Maria Panichelli and Bob Ruggieri could not attend this year’s Business Growth Symposium and are now offering their presentations in webinar format to the Symposium’s attendees. On June 22, Maria and Bob presented “Key Concepts in Federal Contract Subcontracting“.
In the unique world of federal government contracting, subcontracts can be a tricky business. In this webinar, Maria Panichelli and Bob Ruggieri covered the essential subcontracting issues from the perspectives of both prime contractors and subcontractors on federal construction projects. They discussed the negotiation of subcontract clauses, including mandatory FAR flow-downs and other critical provisions including disputes and payment clauses. The presenters 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 attendees were walked through the procedures – and common pitfalls – relating to Miller Act claims.
