Course Description:

In today’s rigid enforcement environment, doing business with the federal government can expose contractors (and subcontractors) to serious risks.

For instance, the way you respond to the RFP and write the contract can trigger false claim charges—with penalties up to $11,000 per claim, puts triple damages and additional costs. (And intent to defraud is not necessary to trigger this enforcement action!) But that’s not the only risk: financial, legal and performance-related liabilities can emerge during every aspect of contract administration.

What’s the best way to manage these risks? What can be done to mitigate them? And, if litigation does arise, how can you minimize the impact on your business? Let a contracting expert show you the answers—in time to protect your profits and future as a contractor.
