Supply Chain Symposium 2019: Update – Mandatory FAR Flow-Down Clauses and Best Practices

January 16, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Pillsbury and PCI will bring back the inaugural topic of the Supply Chain Symposium in January 2019. During this webinar, attendees will learn the mandatory Federal Acquisition Regulation clauses that must be included in commercial item, non-commercial item, and the services subcontracts. The information presented will include all changes and updates through December 31, 2018. Our faculty will compare and contrast Uniform Commercial Code provisions with their counterpart provisions in the Federal Acquisition Regulation and FAR Part 12 as well. We will recommend FAR clauses that you should consider flowing down, even though they are not mandatory. Further, we will present a case study which underscores the importance of choosing precise and careful subcontract terms.

Learning Objectives

  • Attendees will learn the mandatory FAR flowdown clauses applicable to each type of subcontract as of December 31, 2018
  • Attendees will hear advice on sources other than the FAR to derive terms and conditions that are not mandatory
  • Attendees will develop a better understanding of how to mitigate risk in their negotiation and performance of prime contracts and subcontracts
  • Attendees will learn best practices in choosing language for limitation of liability and indemnity provisions

PCI and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman will collaborate again in 2019 to present the fifth year of the Supply Chain Symposium, a monthly webinar series that provides insights about latest legal and practical issues that impact the supply chain.  Attendees include management from the largest prime contractors and systems integrators to employees of small businesses and the lowest tier of subcontractors.  In 2018, the PCI/Pillsbury Supply Chain Symposium will cover the mandatory FAR and DFARS flow-down clauses as of January 1, 2019; best practices in subcontract management and administration; preservation of data rights; monitoring cyber security throughout the supply chain; bid protest issues; cost and pricing issues; and recommended areas of emphasis driven by the current Presidential administration.  We hope you will join us.
