Strategizing for Government Contractors' Game Plan Under the New Administration

The start of a new administration in Washington, D.C. is historically a time of uncertainty and anticipated change for contractors, and President Trump has launched 2017 with particularly bold statements about reforming the federal government, improving efficiencies, reducing regulatory burdens, and dismantling entire agencies and programs, while promising to inject significant investment into infrastructure and defense. At this early stage, the question remains – how will these dramatic changes and policy initiatives affect government contractors?

To help government contractors develop their game plans, our team will provide insider insight and practical advice across a broad range of subject areas, including an in-depth discussion of the Trump Administration’s policies and goals with respect to federal procurement, anticipated trends in enforcement (through suspension and debarment, investigations, and the False Claims Act), updates in the fast-moving world of cyber security, guidance on protecting intellectual property and data rights, what to expect with government-contracts related labor and employment law, litigation impacts on recovery/claims and bid protests, and how President Trump’s trade and national security agenda may affect international issues in government contracting.
