As a Federal Prime Contractor the government imposes many responsibilities on you in the management of your subcontractors. One of the most important responsibilities is to flowdown the correct federal clauses to your subcontractor. Without the proper federal clauses in your subcontracts, you as Prime may not be able to meet your Prime Contract requirements.

During this webinar, CohnReznick will cover the differences between mandatory and non-mandatory federal flowdown clauses; best practices on how to flowdown a federal clause and which clauses to flowdown based on subcontract type; whether or not the Christian Doctrine applies to subcontracts; and where to find free resources that can assist you as Prime in determining which clauses to flowdown. Topics to be discussed:   
  • Differences between federal Prime Contracts and Prime/Sub Contracts (hint: One is a public federal contract and the other is a private agreement between nonfederal parties)
  • Mandatory vs. Non-mandatory Flowdown Clauses for Subcontracts and why as a Prime you will want to flowdown certain non-mandatory clauses
  • How to Flowdown Clauses (i.e. verbatim incorporation, incorporated in substance, incorporated by reference, etc.)
  • Subcontract Type and how it impacts which Clauses are to be Flowed down and Prime Contractor Responsibilities
  • Christian Doctrine application to Subcontracts
  • Free Tools that are available to determine which clauses are to be flowed down to Subcontracts
This webinar is sponsored by CohnReznick
