Speaker: Hilary S. Cairnie

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM (EDT)
Terminations for Convenience: Maximizing Recovery

Pepper partner Hilary S. Cairnie will present the webcast “Terminations for Convenience: Maximizing Recovery.” Mr. Cairnie will lay out the issues that may arise in case of a termination for convenience by the federal government. Mr. Cairnie will begin by explaining which contracts could be subject to such a termination and reviewing relevant contract language and Federal Acquisition Regulation provisions. He will then review the duties both the contractor and the Government must undertake during the termination process, and lays out strategic issues contractors should consider before entering settlement negotiations with the Government. Finally, he will discuss ways to ensure contractors can recover the maximum amount of their allowable costs, as well as lost profits, and how contractors may seek relief from an undesirable settlement.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand which contracts may be subject to termination for convenience
  • Know duties of the Government and the contractor in termination process
  • Build a strategy to approach negotiations for settlement
  • Maximize recovery of allowable contractor costs, including lost profits
  • Identify options for relief in case of an unfair settlement.
