Join NCMA DC for breakfast on November 8, 2018 as we hear from the experts about Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in government contracts disputes. How much do you know about the ADR procedures available at the various government contracts venues? Did you know that, over the last 20 years, the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals has a success rate of approximately 95% in nonbinding ADR proceedings? With the cost of litigation increasing every year, it is no wonder that parties (and judges) are looking more to ADR for resolving seemingly unsolvable disputes. In fact, the FAR directs agencies to employ reasonable efforts to resolve controversies before the submission of a claim.
Get all of your ADR questions answered, such as:
- When is ADR appropriate?
- How can I start the process?
- What can I expect, as a contractor or as an agency, in ADR?
- What ADR techniques are available, and how do I know which one is right for me?
- What are some tips to ensure a successful outcome?
Both in-person and virtual attendance options are available for this event. Light breakfast and coffee provided at Venable LLP. Only 50 virtual seats are available, so be sure to register early if you want to attend online.
