Government contracts are often lengthy and complex: Successful performance requires that all members of the government and contractor teams understand contract requirements that impact their activities. Has your program manager ever said to you, “It’s contracting’s job to worry about what the contract says, I just need to focus on the requirements document (e.g., work statement or specification)?” Performance requirements can appear in any section of the contract and failure to comply with ANY requirement can result in a breach of contract. A team effort is necessary to create and manage a contract both inside the Government and by the contractor.

In this session, we’ll explore the organization and content of complex Federal contracts with the goal of recognizing the importance of effectively engaging a cross-functional team to create and execute contracts. We’ll also review the importance of team roles and responsibilities, involving program managers, engineers, human resource managers, financial managers, security specialists, and others needed to manage contract performance.
