Construction Seminar: Federal Contracting, What Every Contractor Needs to Know


A Presentation by the Husch Blackwell Construction Law Group

Even with mandatory budget cuts now going into effect under sequestration, federal contracting continues to present opportunities for construction companies. But performing federal construction contracts presents unique problems not found in the private sector. This program focuses on the recurring and troubling issues unique to federal construction contracting and presents practical guidance on how to deal with them.

Presented by Washington D.C. attorney Brian Waagner, who specializes in dealing with construction matters with the federal government.

Topics Include: 

  • Preparing for budget cuts under sequestration 
  • The scope of the government’s right to reduce a contractor''s scope of work 
  • Addressing terminations for convenience and deductive modifications 
  • How federal contracts differ from commercial contracts 
  • How the government buys construction services and how to compete for it 
  • Best practices for preparing requests for equitable adjustment and resolving claims under the Contract Disputes Act
