Bring any seminar or course directly to your staff through the Federal Publications’ In-House Presentations Program.
An information-packed two-day program for government, construction, and commercial contract professionals on how to successfully price and prove supply, service and construction contract claims.
Benefit immediately from special guidance on how to turn contract claims into recoverable dollar figures - with special coverage of the often complex, difficult elements of calculation and proof. Dynamic coverage of:
- Claims you are entitled to and should pursue
- The full range of dollars you are entitiled to recover
- The most effective techniques you can use to calculate the claim's value
- The legal framework
- How to analyze and price productivity
- Every cost and profit factor to include in claims
- How your claim can be presented in clear, indisputable terms
- Pricing equitable adjustments, direct costs, indirect costs
- Successfully manage the special issues that can arise when pricing and proving claims from delays, contract breaches, and termination ...and much more.
The program focuses on techniques for preparing and calculating claims and on how to transform claim elements into recoverable figures. This involves carefully pricing the tangibles and intangibles--labor, material, equipment, overhead, profit, etc.--and, in many claims (especially those related to construction): loss of efficiency. The most costly losses a contractor can incur on a project frequently result from reduced labor and equipment productivity, where delay and disruption to contract work impacts productivity--which then leads to loss of efficiency claims.
Furthermore, in its entirety, the course provide you with skills to:
- Identify all of the cost factors that can be and should be included in claims under Government contracts and construction contracts.
- Compute the proper dollar amounts assignable to those factors.
- Present your claim in clear, indisputable terms.
- Understand and successfully manage the necessary elements of a claim’s proof.
- Price equitable adjustments, direct costs, loss of efficiency, indirect costs, and more.
- Successfully manage the special issues that can arise when pricing and proving claims that arise from delays, contract breaches, and terminations.
- The course will be presented by a highly distinguished Course Faculty--two experienced practitioners whose credentials are detailed below. In addition to highly insightful lectures and classroom discussions, you will also receive a comprehensive Manual of written materials--for your use during the course and for concise reference after the course has been completed.
