Bass, Berry & Sims attorneys Richard Arnholt and Todd Overman will present a training webinar titled, “COVID-19 Update – What Every Government Contractor Needs To Know” for the Maryland Procurement Technical Assistance Center (Maryland PTAC). The interactive seminar will provide insight into the flurry of government contracting activity relating to the COVID-19 pandemic and government reaction, as well as the statutory, regulatory, and administrative actions the government is attempting to decrease the impact of this national emergency on government contractors.

Among other topics, the webinar will cover:

  • Claims and excusable delays – is the pandemic a force majeure event?
  • New legislation and regulatory actions – small business grants/loans, authority for agencies to pay contractors to be on standby, and increased DoD progress payments.
  • Emergency contracting authorities – can the government really do that?
  • Book keeping during a crisis – will you be prepared for investigations and inquiries when the crisis is over?

This webinar will be held on Thursday, April 2, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. EDT. For more information and registration, please visit the Maryland PTAC website.
