SELLING TO FEDERAL AGENCIES IS NOT A "ONE SIZE FITS ALL" BUSINESS
Although some in government insist that "the government is one customer", experienced contractors know that federal business success requires a variety of approaches depending on what you're selling and to whom you are selling it. The approach a company uses to sell to a large agency may be very different than that for a smaller or independent government customer.

COVID-19 Update: Department of Defense Issues Class Deviation, Increasing Certain Progress Payment Ceilings
As most government contractors are aware, progress payments are a form of contract financing in which the Government pays the contractor based on cost throughout performance of the contract, up to a cap dictated by the terms of the contract. On March 20, 2020 - "in response to the Coronavirus Disease" - the Department of Defense issued a Class Deviation to contract clauses DFARS 252.232-7004 and FAR 52.232-16, the effect of which is to increase the progress payment rates to 90% for large business concerns and 95% for small business concerns - an increase of 10% and 5%, respectively - from the customary progress payment rates established by DFARS 232.501-1. The Class Deviation provides that the change is to remain in effect until rescinded.

Know Your Rights: Potential Impacts of COVID-19 on Construction Projects
The COVID-19 (Coronavirus disease) outbreak, and the resulting emergency declarations and quarantines in various cities and countries has the potential to negatively impact construction projects. The extent of the potential impacts on construction projects is unknown, but forward-looking contractors are already planning for possible labor shortages, material delays or unavailability, disruption to supply chains, and other impacts. Although contractors' positions will be dependent on specific contract clauses, it is critical that contractors understand their options in the face of the rapidly changing landscape. In many instances, the critical analysis starts with the "force majeure" clause.
