COVID-19 Protocol Compliance Guidance For Federal Contractors


Are you up to speed on the new COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors, and related compliance concerns?  If you haven’t been following these critical legal developments (or even if you have) it’s time to tune in and pay attention!  Covered contractors will need to comply with a slew of new safety protocols – including sweeping employee vaccination mandates (and monitoring/documenting employee vaccination status), masking/physical distancing requirements (and related weekly monitoring and signage-creation) and the designation of a COVID Coordinator.  They will also need to flow down COVID protocol clauses to their subs.  If you do business with the Federal government, it is vital that you understand your new obligations or risk major non-compliance issues.  In this webinar, experienced government contracting attorney Maria Panichelli will walk you through what you need to know: Where these new protocols came from; what exactly you (and your subs) need to do; when you need to do it; and the important things you need to think about in the immediate and long term.  Maria will discuss how to deal with and respond to modifications to existing contracts, as well as new solicitations including the COVID deviation clause.  If you haven’t already received modifications seeking to add a COVID deviation to your contract, you likely will soon.  At the very least, you will soon be going after a new contract with the COVID protocols clause built in.  Figure out what that means for you, and how to protect yourself as must as possible in this new unprecedented world.  Sign up today!

Maria L. Panichelli is a partner, and the chair of the government contracting practice group, at Obermayer Rebmann, Maxwell and Hippel LLP.  She focuses her practice exclusively on federal contracts, assisting clients through every stage of the procurement process.  Her practice includes performance and compliance counseling, asserting and defending bid and size/status protests, REAs, claims and CDA claim appeals and litigation, federal subcontracting, and small business procurement.  Maria provides comprehensive legal counseling that allows her clients to successfully navigate the complicated legal requirements related to federal contracting while fulfilling their own business goals.  An active member of several federal contracting associations, Maria is a frequent lecturer at agency, government contracting and small business conferences, and works closely with several Procurement Technical Assistance Centers to provide educational content for contractors.
