Contract closeout is a critical, but often forgotten, piece of the Contract process. This seminar will focus on what contractors need to move the close out process through to completion, efficiently and effectively. Achieving closeout will ensure final payments are made, audit issues are concluded, past performance evaluations are submitted and any open issues are resolved. Timely close out efforts result in reduced contract administration and ensure a greater likelihood that contractors still have and can provide all the documentation necessary to achieve a favorable contract close out.
