Improper CPARS, Good Faith, and Fair Dealing

Good contractors know that maximizing contract award opportunities is the key to success.  They also know that past performance is a critically important part of getting new work.   It is not surprising, then, that contractors feel very strongly about the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS), and the CPARS ratings they get in connection with contracts they have performed.  At the same time, most contractors don’t have a thorough understanding of the big picture when it comes to CPARS – many don’t know what to do if they disagree with a CPARS rating.  Do you know what to do if you get a CPARS rating that is inaccurate, unfair, or unjustified?   In this webinar, experienced government contracting attorney Maria Panichelli will teach attendees about the basics of CPARS, as well as the rights and remedies contractors have in connection with the same.   The webinar will also cover good faith and fair dealing issues, both in the CPARS context and other contexts.

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.
