“I Can’t Litigate On The Government’s Nickel Anymore? Jeez, Tecom Has Ruined It For Everyone!” Defense and settlement costs have historically been recognized by the Federal government as a cost of doing business and contractors have properly categorized these costs as allowable under the FAR. However, a recent decision by the Federal Circuit in Geren v. Tecom, Inc. has changed the landscape, making these costs unallowable in many circumstances and positioning legal and settlement costs for much greater audit scrutiny. Are you prepared? Jessica Graham, Executive Vice President & General Counsel of Afognak Native Corporation, will lead a discussion of the Tecom decision and the changing analysis contractors must undergo when faced with employment litigation and other types of third party litigation. 1 General CLE Credit. PIZZA will be served.
