The objective of this webinar is to provide an introductory overview of how the federal government contracts for construction including the applicable clauses and provisions.

There are a lot of opportunities in federal government construction contracting, however, to be competitive and considered for contract award, you must know how the federal government contracts for construction services.

This webinar will provide a top-level review of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 36 – Construction and Architect-Engineer Contracts to include the procurement of construction services and the contract administration process.
