Your company, which has never had a federal grant or contract, was just awarded a $10 million grant to fund a much-needed construction project.  Now what?

Over the next few years, the federal government will be awarding hundreds of billions of dollars in grants under the Infrastructure and Jobs Act and the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) Program, among other sources of federal funding.  While those projects will create significant opportunities for companies, many of the grants will be awarded to companies that do not typically deal with federal grant requirements and are therefore unfamiliar with the strict procurement requirements that apply to the award of contracts under federal grants, the limitations on recovery of certain costs, the mandate to use certain U.S.-made goods, and the audit requirements for those who receive federal awards over $750k.  In addition, much of that funding will go to companies that do not engage in construction regularly and therefore face higher construction-specific risks.

To navigate these requirements and risks, please join Bass, Berry & Sims members, Richard Arnholt (Government Contracts) and Brian Dobbs (Construction), for a webinar discussing the rules applicable to these projects, along with the best practices in mitigating contract administration risks, the top ten claims risks, and how to properly documents claims.
