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.

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.

Government Contracts and COVID-19 - Contract Compliance Considerations
Government Contracts and COVID-19 - Contract Compliance Considerations Description - This webinar will address dual challenges and opportunities faced by contractors stemming from the current COVID-19 environment. Established government contractors currently performing government contracts may face cost and / or schedule impacts caused by various delays, disruptions, stop work situations, etc., for a variety of reasons rooted in COVID-19.

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.
