Over the next few years, the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will spend hundreds of millions of dollars on military construction projects in Israel. Although these projects are awarded to American companies, American prime contractors can and often do enter into teaming arrangements with Israeli companies (typically through a subcontract), where up to 75% of the work is performed by Israeli companies. Given these circumstances, Israeli contractors face highly-rewarding opportunities and equal risks from USACE projects.
Michael Payne and Lane Kelman of Cohen Seglias and Sharon Adler of Harpaz, Oren, Adler & Co. led a comprehensive seminar that provided Israeli contractors with a foundational understanding of USACE projects in Israel and highlighted best practices to manage risks and maximize opportunities. Michael and Lane drew on their knowledge of and experience with U.S. federal construction contracting and used real-life examples to outline common scenarios Israeli subcontractors may face. Their perspective, paired with Sharon’s knowledge of and experience with USACE projects constructed in Israel and his understanding of the Israeli construction industry, provided Israeli companies with what they need to know when considering involvement in USACE projects.
