REAs and Claims: What’s the Difference?
October 31 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Constructive changes are a fairly common event in the course of a Government contract, but how a contractor proceeds once it identifies a constructive change can have a significant impact on its eventual recovery as well as its relationship with its Government customer. Join PCI’s Tim Sullivan on Tuesday, October 31, as he explains the difference between claims and requests for equitable adjustments and discusses tactical and strategic considerations designed to maximize a contractor’s recovery without burning bridges with its customer. This will be a nuts-and-bolts discussion that could have an immediate impact on problems you are working on right now, so please join us for this important program.
