Government Contract Management Best Practices and Dangers

Avoid common pitfalls experienced by government contractors and subcontractors.

The federal government can be a great customer for your company’s products and services. But selling to the government, either directly or as a subcontractor to a prime contractor or reseller, is not without its challenges. Federal contractors and subcontractors are subject to numerous compliance obligations, and the consequences of noncompliance can be severe. This topic will explore some of the major attributes of government contracts and discover how they differ from simple commercial contracts. Best practices used by contractors and subcontractors to avoid costly mistakes and follow the life cycle of a government contract will also be discussed.
