Article Responds to Recent Appellate Decision Adverse to Government Contractors

Dorothy E. Terrell, Edmund M. Amorosi, and John M. Cook, all members of the firm, were recognized in the August 2010 edition of the Washington Contractor, the official publication of the Associated General Contractors of Metropolitan Washington DC, for their work as instructors for the PMDP – Project Manager Development Program. The PMDP program is an ongoing AGC of DC program and the first session took place on August 17-18, 2010. The program is designed to promote the professional development of entry-level or early-career project managers in the construction industry. The PMDP program has five modules: (1) Estimating and Job Costing; (2) Contract Administration; (3) Project Administration; (4) Risk Management, and (5) Leadership. SPM attorneys provided instruction relating to Module 2, Contract Administration. "Sharing our knowledge of construction law with project managers and getting their feedback on issues they are facing on their projects was a great experience," said Ed Amorosi. "AGC should be applauded for offering the PMDP course to their members and drawing on the skills and knowledge of their more experienced members to develop the next generation of industry leaders. It is a win-win for all involved."
