Key Subcontracting Issues Including Flow-Down and Paid-if-Paid Provisions
|Date / Time:
The saying goes that two heads are better than one, and this is especially the case when pursuing government contract opportunities. It is a prime contract that has a contractor performing without any partners. Even large defense contractors with an extensive library of forms, however, can fall victim to certain traps that can lurk in the subcontract.When Is a Form Not a Form? Tips for Negotiating the "Form"
Failure to comply with legal requirements, provide true and correct certifications, or negotiate adequate protection of one's interests can not only impact company bottom lines, but also subject one to liability under the civil False Claims Act, potential civil and criminal liability under federal fraud statutes, and potential administrative sanctions, such as suspension or debarment.
This live webinar will cover some of the more important issues in a subcontract and provide valuable checklists and references for small business concerns, protecting intellectual property rights, and preserving ones status as a commercial item provider.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
