2008 Government Contract Seminar Series: Due Diligence Issues in Government Contracts M & A


McLean, VA

Mergers and acquisitions can be key to business strategies for government contractors domestically and internationally. Due diligence assists acquirors and merger partners in assessing the target company's value, and mitigates the risks involved with potentially "buying the problem." The unique environment of government contracting, with its complex laws and regulations, pose potential risks that include not only financial liability, but also civil and criminal liability, as well as suspension and debarment.

  • Key considerations for developing a comprehensive due diligence plan
  • How to identify and assess the problems frequently encountered in government contract due diligence
  • The issues involved in a transaction, such as: management and personnel; conflicts of interest; accounting and billing; intellectual property; contract performance; audits and investigations; small business; export control; and more
  • Strategies for mitigating your risk in M&A when government contracts are involved
