Contract Changes, Disputes, and Terminations

CONChangesBookCoverContract changes are inevitable and must be anticipated and properly managed. “Contract Changes, Disputes, and Terminations—Mastering the Fundamentals” is designed to provide the information you need to handle any and all ambiguities, differences of opinion, or potential and real conflicts between the parties. These can arise by verbal discussion, letter, the proposal, the basic contract, or any of its subsequent modifications. They can involve everything from the interpretation of the statement of work to the minutes of a meeting. Changes can also come from various sources—some with the authority to make them and sometimes not. They can also impact the success of your contract as well as the relationship between the parties.

Every attendee will receive a copy of the Contract Changes, Disputes & Terminations book.

At the completion of this seminar, participants will understand the following:

  • What constitutes a change,
  • How changes arise,
  • Who is authorized to issue and respond to changes and how to respond,
  • The various actions to be taken to successfully incorporate changes both parties agree to, including the next steps when agreement is not forthcoming; and
  • Knowing when and how to expect contract changes, as well as disagreement.

Avoiding escalation of those issues, along with working through them when (not if) they occur, is vital to success or failure of your program as well as organization. At the end of this one-day seminar, you will be confident in protecting you and your organization from surprises that can derail your program’s success.

Anyone involved in the acquisition process will benefit from the content covered: managers, directors, financial analysts, engineers, technical managers, auditors, reviewers, quality inspectors, business development employees, and senior leaders and executives, among others. The learning provided will help not only those with only a rudimentary understanding of government contracting, but those with mid- or even senior-level experience as well.

To work within this field, there is no more valuable way to invest seven hours than gaining a deep understanding of the changes, disputes, and termination process within government contracting.
