Maria Panichelli presents a VA PTAC Webinar, entitled “Changes: The Most Important Clause in Government Contracting.”
As many experienced federal contractors know, the Changes clause just may be the most important clause in your contract. From variations in quantities, to design revisions, to delays, to defective specifications, to breaches of warranty, many if not most of the issues that arise during the performance of a government contract are within the scope of the Changes clause. In this webinar, Maria Panichelli discusses the various circumstances that implicate the FAR’s Changes clause, and the different things that constitute a “change.” Using real-life examples, Maria provides an explanation of how to successfully navigate change-related issues during performance, with a focus on how contractors can get paid for changes as they arise, while also preserving their relationships with government personnel and agencies. Attendees will learn how to identify and distinguish between types of changes, how to provide proper notice, how to avoid conflict with the government over changes, and how to get properly compensated.
