John Pachter to Present at the King’s College London – GWU Law School Annual Transatlantic Symposium on Public Procurement Law

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.

Topics include:

  • How Poor Procurement Affects Failed Contract Performance
  • The Limited Impact of EU Public Procurement Law on Contract Administration
  • U.S. Experience: Linking Contract Award to Performance Through Standardized Clauses and Dispute Resolution — and Fraud
  • Improving Contract Performance Through Better Procurement: Diverse National Experiences
  • Judges & Arbitrators Panel: European Approach to Resolution of Disputes in Public Contracts

NOTE: Due to COVID-19 precaution, this symposium has been cancelled.
