Join NCMA DC on Thursday, February 4 to hear from Paul Seidman and David Seidman of Seidman and Associates, P.C. about maximizing contractor recovery in terminations for convenience in this important “How To” webinar for contractor executives and procurement attorneys. Terminations for convenience have become more common due to Government downsizing, particularly during this pandemic. Unfortunately, contractors often do not know what costs they are entitled to recover. As a result, they do not claim all allowable costs and accept improper disallowances by the Government or prime contractors. The purpose of the webinar is to provide contractors practical advice on how to prepare a termination for convenience settlement proposal and to familiarize them with pertinent rules so that they receive “fair compensation.” The webinar is based on lessons learned by the lecturers in preparing, negotiating and litigating Termination Settlement Proposals.
Learn the tricks of the trade from experts in the field and earn 1.5 CLE credits! The webinar will take place on Zoom. Registrants will receive login information via email.
