Deep Dive into Department of Defense Implementation of CARES Act Section 3610
Deep dive into the Department of Defense implementation of CARES Act section 3610 Subtitle: Key considerations for contractors seeking relief for impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic Description: The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic crisis have disrupted businesses across all regions and industries and government contractors have not been immune. Congress provided a path for government contractors to seek relief through the CARES Act, specifically section 3610. Government agencies have scrambled to craft actionable guidance for contracting officers and the contracting community. DoD has been at the forefront of this effort, issuing the most comprehensive guidance to date. In this on-demand webinar, we dissect the regulatory approach taken by agencies in implementing section 3610, emphasizing DoD's approach. We will focus on cost recovery, tease relevant clues and cues from contract clauses and case law, and post warning signs where we see potential compliance and audit pitfalls. Join Baker Tilly and Arnold & Porter to explore and map the labyrinth of agency guidance implementing section 3610, from broad pronouncements to complex and detailed rules, clauses, and checklists. Learning Objectives: By the end of this webinar, you should be able to:  Describe CARES Act section 3610 and its applicability  Explain DoD implementation guidance, including the DFARS class deviation, associated FAQ, and its detailed checklists to guide submission and review of requests for relief  Describe guidance from the Office of Management and Budget, General Services Administration, and other key stakeholders and summarize any pending legislation of which contractors should be aware  Identify areas that are potentially ripe for audit scrutiny and thus should be a focus for contractors seeking reimbursement  Highlight pre-existing authorities, including contract clauses and case law, that may prove important to claims for

Each of these situations present unique government contract compliance considerations as well as clear distinctions in contractor reactions and responses. This webinar will offer various attributes or aspects of each that contractors should be aware of to effectively manage the risks and rewards associated with both current and prospective government contracts.
