Being awarded a federal contract can be great for business—unless something goes wrong.

For instance, what happens if a government client makes expensive changes to the original contract? Or what if they’re responsible for delaying the project schedule?  Situations like these can leave contractors having to cover unanticipated costs that can cut deeply into profits.

You don’t have to leave money on the table. Instead, let an expert in federal contracting show you how to use REAs and claims to recover those costs … without giving up a good relationship with your federal clients.

In this 90-minute webinar, experienced federal contracting attorney Ed Delisle will explain two key strategies for seeking compensation when something goes wrong post-award. You’ll learn the differences between Requests for Equitable Adjustments (REAs) and claims and when to use each of them. You’ll also receive valuable guidance on the Contract Disputes Act claims and appeals process.

Maximizing your chance of recovering costs. You’ll learn how to use REAs and claims without making mistakes that can affect your relationship with your government client, how much you end up receiving and how long it takes. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now for expert guidance for getting the government to reimburse you for unanticipated costs incurred on a contract, including how to:

  • Differentiate between REAs and claims and determine when to use each
  • Appeal a claim denial to the Boards of Contract Appeals or the Court of Federal Claims
  • Understand the best way to apply sub-v-prime and Miller Act claims

When the government is responsible for delaying a project or making expensive changes to the original contract, you don’t want to be left holding the bag. Don’t miss this opportunity to get expert guidance on how to use REAs and claims to recover those costs—without sacrificing your client relationship.
