Government Contracts


Sequestration and Its Impact on Colleges and Universities

May 29, 2013 • Webinar

As significant recipients of federally funded grants and contracts, colleges and universities are feeling the impact of the current environment of federal budget uncertainty - primarily sequestration, continuing resolutions, redirection of funds, and other austerity measures.  To help its members better understand how these issues impact their institutions, United Educators has teamed with Crowell & Moring LLP to offer a complimentary webinar focusing on the most common impacts of the budget uncertainty, such as delays, changes, conflicting direction from the government, terminations of programs, and non-renewal of contracts.  Our presenters will provide practical tips that colleges and universities can deploy to protect their interests and minimize risks.  We will explore these complex issues from several different angles, including compliance risks, financial risks, employment law implications, procurement, contract negotiation, and protecting entitlement in the event that your programs end up at risk.
