How is someone supposed to understand everything that is in there?&rdquo; Unfortunately, the answer is &ldquo;yes&rdquo; the government does expect you to know all of the FAR and DFARS clauses that are relevant to your work and to follow them to the letter. Not only that, but by virtue of the fact that the FAR and DFARS are publicly available, all contractors are presumed to have a knowledge of all the clauses and understand them. This reality can be daunting for a new company or even a large well-established businesses looking to enter the federal space. During this session we will look at some of the most confusing and poorly understood FAR and DFARS provisions to give you a leg up on your competition or be able to help your own companies or those you work with in navigating these areas of the law.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">We will investigate:</p> <ul> <li style="text-align: justify;">FAR and DFARS Data Rights Clauses</li> <li style="text-align: justify;">Mandatory Disclosure Requirements</li> <li style="text-align: justify;">Employee Compensation Reporting Requirements</li> <li style="text-align: justify;">Small Business Recertification under the FAR and 13 CFR</li> <li style="text-align: justify;">Allowable Costs Provisions</li> <li style="text-align: justify;">IDIQ Ordering Procedures</li> <li style="text-align: justify;">And many more!</li> </ul> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table>https://www.pilieromazza.com/?t=39&format=xml&directive=0&stylesheet=rss&records=10WEBINAR: Compliance and Your Business: Managing SCA Costs and Liabilityhttps://www.pilieromazza.com/?t=40&an=107823&format=xml16 Jul 2020Events<table width="100%" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1"> <tbody> <tr> <td><br /> <strong>Speaker:<br /> <br type="_moz" /> </strong></td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td><a href="https://www.pilieromazza.com/attorneys/details/nichole-d-atallah/5" target="_blank">Nichole Atallah</a></td> </tr> <tr> <td><br /> <strong>Program:<br /> <br type="_moz" /> </strong></td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td><strong>Compliance and Your Business: Managing SCA Costs and Liability</strong></td> </tr> <tr> <td><br /> <strong>Date / Time:<br /> <br type="_moz" /> </strong></td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>July 16, 2020 / 2:00 PM ET</td> </tr> <tr> <td><strong><br /> Event:&nbsp;<br /> <br type="_moz" /> </strong></td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>Webinar</td> </tr> <tr> <td><br /> <strong>Organizer:</strong><br /> &nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td><a href="http://publiccontractinginstitute.com/" target="_blank">The Public Contracting Institute (PCI)</a></td> </tr> <tr> <td><br /> <strong>Location:</strong><br /> &nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>Virtual</td> </tr> <tr> <td><br /> <strong>Registration:</strong>&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>Visit this&nbsp;<u><a href="https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/86357148664641294" target="_blank">link</a></u>&nbsp;to register.</td> </tr> <tr> <td><strong><br /> Description:<br /> <br type="_moz" /> </strong></td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</td> <td> <p style="text-align: justify;">Compliance with the Service Contract Act (SCA), now referred to as the Service Contract Labor Standards, is a challenge for many companies.

Join PCI&rsquo;s &ldquo;Subcontracting Summit,&rdquo; a series of nine 75-minute virtual webinars beginning in January.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">You and your colleagues are invited to participate as experienced faculty explain virtually every aspect of the subcontracting process over the nine-part series, using case studies based on actual events whenever possible. Whether you are a prime contractor preparing subcontracting plans or dealing with subcontracting plan audits, a subcontractor losing work share or not being paid, or trying to understand why certain terms show up in subcontracts and how the regulations relate to them, this series will provide you with real-life answers and guidance. Further, you will hear how each side views a particular subcontracting challenge and how smart contractors have resolved them. You&rsquo;ll develop a better understanding of what the Federal government&rsquo;s role in the process is, despite its attempts to stay out of it.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Framework for each session:</p> <ul> <li style="text-align: justify;">background;</li> <li style="text-align: justify;">case studies/anecdotes;</li> <li style="text-align: justify;">case law;</li> <li style="text-align: justify;">best practices; and</li> <li style="text-align: justify;">Q&amp;A!</li> </ul> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table>https://www.pilieromazza.com/?t=39&format=xml&directive=0&stylesheet=rss&records=10WEBINAR: PPP Forgiveness—Is It Forgivable?https://www.pilieromazza.com/?t=40&an=109148&format=xml09 Jun 2020Events<table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1"> <tbody> <tr> <td><br /> <strong>Speakers:<br /> <br type="_moz" /> </strong></td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td><a title="Cy Alba" href="https://www.pilieromazza.com/attorneys/details/isaias-alba-iv/8" target="_blank">Cy Alba</a> of&nbsp;<a title="PilieroMazza" href="https://www.pilieromazza.com/" target="_blank">PilieroMazza</a>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<a title="Bill Walter" href="https://www.dhg.com/people/userid/124?filter=Bill-Walter" target="_blank">Bill Walter</a>&nbsp;of&nbsp;<a href="https://www.dhg.com/">Dixon Hughes Goodman</a></td> </tr> <tr> <td><br /> <strong>Program:</strong><br /> &nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>PPP Forgiveness&mdash;Is It Forgivable?</td> </tr> <tr> <td><br /> <strong>Date / Time:</strong><br /> &nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>June 9, 2020 / 11:00 AM ET</td> </tr> <tr> <td><br /> <strong>Event:&nbsp;</strong><br /> &nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>Webinar</td> </tr> <tr> <td><br /> <strong>Organizer:</strong><br /> &nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP</td> </tr> <tr> <td><br /> <strong>Location:</strong><br /> &nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>Virtual&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr> <td><br /> <strong>Registration:</strong><br /> &nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>Visit this&nbsp;<a href="https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/6290083228880098830" target="_blank"><u>link</u></a>&nbsp;to register.</td> </tr> <tr> <td><strong><br /> Description:<br /> <br /> </strong></td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td> <p style="text-align: justify;">Hot questions about the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) are now honing in on forgiveness.
