FREE Popular Topics Webinar: Federal Procurement Domestic Preferences
May 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm
Designed for lawyers and contracting professionals, this course will examine the key statutory and regulatory framework of the United States’ domestic sourcing regime – from Buy American Act / Trade Agreements Act compliance to Berry Amendment compliance. The instructors (Ira Hoffman) will help attendees navigate this complex area.
This course will help participants:
Understand the regulatory and statutory requirements for complying with the myriad sourcing and content requirements under Federal Government contracts, including the Buy American Act (BAA), the Trade Agreements Act (TAA) and the Berry Amendment
Recognize nuances in sourcing and content requirements (e.g., construction versus manufacturing, contracting with the Department of Defense, performing under contracts funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009)
Understand how these requirements are implemented, certified and incorporated into a contract, and what requirements must be flowed down to subcontractors
Understand the implications of failing to comply with these sourcing requirements, including False Claims Act violations and breach of contract
