Public Construction Projects – What Now?

Join us for a lively panel discussion bringing together professionals who understand and can discuss various legal, accounting and regulatory risks that affect the work and risk of the CM performing work under publicly funded projects.

Discussion will focus on three areas that are currently “high risk” for CM Firms, owners and contractors that work on publicly funded projects, and will include current examples of issues that are being pursued by agencies at this time including;

  • The increased scrutiny and implications of M/W/DBE Enforcement;
  • Financial and operational consequences when claims and change orders become ‘False Claims” and are subject to legal action;
  • The risk of not paying union labor in accordance with union labor contracts and other practices that can lead to penalties.
