The Europe District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is hosting an Industry Day on August 15, 2018 in Tel Aviv. The event begins at 09:00 at The Ritz-Carlton Herzlia.

This conference will present an overview of upcoming construction projects in Israel and provide U.S. firms with an opportunity to meet potential Israeli subcontractors or suppliers.

Although these construction projects are performed in Israel, the law requires that the prime contracts must be awarded to U.S. firms and they, in turn, are permitted to subcontract up to 75% of the work to Israeli companies. Given the millions of dollars that have been obligated to the program, there are many opportunities for American and Israeli firms to work together. 

Cohen Seglias’ Government Contracting Group, together with our Israeli counterpart, Sharon Adler of Harpaz, Oren, Adler & Co., has considerable experience in U.S. federal contracting law and in the subcontracting relationships between American and Israeli companies. We understand the complicated procedures that must be followed, as well as the differences in culture and business practices that frequently affect these projects. Our goal is to work with our clients, both based in the U.S. and in Israel, to provide sound guidance that leads to successful projects and partnerships.

We encourage you to join us at the Industry Day and invite you to introduce yourself. If you have any questions about the event or need assistance with any of your government contracting needs, please contact me at or any member of our Government Contracting Group.
