Meghan Douris and Jim Nagle to Present at NCMA Columbia Basin

Fri Apr 8, 2016

Attorneys Meghan Douris, Partner, and Jim Nagle, Of Counsel, will co-present on Suspensions & Terminations at the Columbia Basin chapter of the National Contract Management Association (NCMA). The day-long seminar will take place on April 14, 2016 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Courtyard by Marriott in Richland, Washington.

In the Government contracting arena, there are many instances in which a contract is required to be suspended or even terminated. In this seminar, Meghan and Jim will cover the various types of suspensions and terminations, different ways of ending a Government contract, delays in Government contracts, and costs associated with suspensions and terminations. This seminar is intended to shed light on the various aspects of each of these situations and arm attendees with the requisite knowledge to assist in administering contracts that may have been or may be suspended or terminated.
