Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 03, 2012

Contractors are not without rights when a contract is terminated, and having a working knowledge of those rights will help you maximize your recovery if your contract is terminated.

Unlike most commercial contracts, Federal government contracts permit the government to terminate a contract for the government’s convenience. Worse yet, it is likely that the coming budget cuts and possible sequestration will result in agencies adjusting their priorities which may result in an increase in contract terminations. The government may also, of course, terminate a contract for default, and it is possible that budgetary constraints may cause agencies to be less hesitant to consider a default termination as well.

This webinar will provide an overview of both termination for convenience and termination for default, the procedural steps the government must follow, recommendations as to how a contractor should respond, and explain which costs are recoverable. For example, certain expenses, including preparation of a termination for convenience settlement proposal, are recoverable.

The 90-minute webinar, entitled “Terminations in Government Contracts: Preparing for Budget Cuts" is scheduled for Thursday, December 13, at 1:00 PM Eastern.
