Getting Paid Under Federal Government Contracts Virtual Class

April 6, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm




Designed for lawyers and contracting professionals, this course will examine the fundamental aspects of the payment process in Federal Government contracting – from a contractor’s initial registration in the System for Award Management database to resolving a dispute for payment under the Contract Disputes Act.

Drawing from many years of experience, the instructors (Sandy Hoe and Justin Ganderson, Covington & Burling LLP; and Ralph Nash, Professor Emeritus of Law The George Washington University) will focus on the key areas of the payment process that every Government contractor should know before entering into any Government contract.  Those areas include: (1) how a contractor requests and receives payment under USG contracts; (2) the significance of different types of payment provisions/requests under Government contracts; (3) changing the payment recipient; (4) assigning payment under a contract to a financing institution; and (5) resolving payment disputes and delays.  Having a strong command of this process and the nuances of Federal Government contracting will help contractors ensure that they are fully and timely paid.
