Managing Constructive Changes

Morrison & Foerster’s Government Contracts Remote Learning Series

29 Apr 2020 12:00 p.m. - 01:15 p.m. EDT

Join Jay DeVecchio for the premier presentation of a new series, Morrison & Foerster’s Government Contracts Remote Learning Series. Our group will provide a monthly overview of the latest topics in government contracting, explaining the “why” and “how” of a particular legal problem, and lessons available from recent case decisions that inform how best to navigate it.

In “Managing Constructive Changes: Protecting the Bottom Line When the Customer Alters Performance,” Jay offers a different and practical perspective on changes, based on long experience with the tension between the government’s pressures to change your work and contractors’ desire to keep the customer satisfied. All contractors should invest in understanding the “Changes” clause, especially as a compliance or risk reduction issue.

Jay will analyze the legal and risk management aspects of this clause, how to avoid potential pitfalls, and why it should be a part of your personnel-training toolkit. Covered areas will include:

  • Overview of How and Why Changes Happen
  • Educating Program Employees to Recognize and Respond To Changes
  • Improving Your Position On Contract Interpretation
  • Issues Surrounding Equitable Adjustments

CA, NY, and VA CLE credit is pending.
