Three-part webinar series will help Government contractors face inherent challenges

January 7, 2019

Contracting with the Federal Government can be challenging and sometimes bewildering. If you are a Government contractor or considering doing business with the Government, Thompson Coburn’s upcoming webinar series will help make your job easier.

The three sessions will focus on making the most of your debriefing, understanding the “Key Personnel” requirement and its impact on agency decisions, and identifying how and when to pursue relief from the costs of contract changes using a Request for Equitable Adjustment (REA).
