1:00-2:00 PM EDT

On September 20th, the California University of Pennsylvania Government Agency Coordination Office – Procurement Technical Assistance Center is hosting a webinar on all aspects of the protest process taught by Cohen Seglias Federal Contracting Partner Maria Panichelli.

As any Federal Government contractor will tell you, today’s federal contracting market is extremely competitive. Many solicitations ultimately involve bid, size or status/eligibility protests. Understanding these protests and the related procedures can make the difference between getting the contract, or getting left out of the race altogether. Maria will explain the differences between the various types of protests and walk you through the debriefing process, as well as the who, what, when, where, why & how of filing a protest. Maria will also explain the other side of protests, teaching you how to defend against protests filed by frustrated competitors. Sign up today and learn how to use debriefings and protests as an affirmative tool to get the contracts you want.

Thank you for joining us for Ed DeLisle and Maria Panichelli‘s  TargetGov webinar, “REAs and CDA Claims: Key Strategies in Seeking Compensation” on February 16, 2016.

After you’ve secured your Federal government contract award, what comes next? As any Federal contractor will tell you, the contract award is only the beginning. The FAR and its supplementary regulations impose a host of obligations on contractors, and can impact the ways in which a contractor performs a contract. These rules and regulations also dictate the ways in which those contractors can seek compensation for unanticipated costs incurred on the job. In this webinar, Ed and Maria will explore Requests for Equitable Adjustment, Claims, and the differences between the two. As they walk you through the Contract Disputes Act process, you will also learn how to maximize your chance of success when making claims against the Federal government.

You can listen to their webinar here.

Edward T. DeLisle is Co-Chair of the Federal Contracting Practice Group. Ed frequently advises contractors on federal contracting matters including bid protests, claims and appeals, procurement issues, small business issues and dispute resolution.
