John S. Pachter will be a panelist at the King’s College, London – George Washington University Law School Annual Transatlantic Symposium on Public Procurement Law on March 16, 2020, at King’s College in London. The conference will focus on “Conflicts in Public Contract Administration: Shared Lessons.” Mr. Pachter will speak on a panel entitled the “U.S. Experience: Linking Contract Award to Performance Through Standardized Clauses and Dispute Resolution — and Fraud.”
Procurement reform internationally has until now centered on contract formation, and contract administration and its inevitable disputes (and fraud) too often have been ignored. This symposium seeks to remedy that, by bringing together judges, lawyers, and academics from both sides of the Atlantic to share ways forward to a sound approach for resolving conflicts in contract administration.
