Government Contractors Forum: Trends and Developments - Defending Commerciality and Price Reasonableness


Live at the offices of Valo Park/Tegna, 7950 Jones Branch Drive, McLean, Virginia, OR BY WEBCAST from your desk.


This program will review recent statutory and regulatory changes affecting commercial item contracting and will provide practical tips for contractors to manage increased government scrutiny and challenges to commercial item determinations. Specifically, we will discuss statutory changes to commercial item procurement procedures within the Department of Defense and the 2015 and 2016 proposed rules that sought to revise the DFARS to implement those statutory changes.  We will examine recent trends in commercial item contracting on commercial item determinations and price reasonableness analyses.  The panel will also address best practices for industry to support assertions of commerciality and the reasonableness of proposed prices.


Presented by Tracye Winfrey Howard  and  Jon Burd of Wiley Rein LLP and Suzette Derrevere, Senior Counsel, The Boeing Company.


Lunch will be provided on-site beginning at 12:00 noon.  The program/webcast will begin at 12:30 p.m.
