Legal Considerations in Government Contracting (CON 216)


In this course, you’ll build upon your learning from Level I contracting courses, the prerequisite Level II courses and your on-the-job experiences to gain the legal knowledge essential in making sound government contracting decision. Legal Considerations in Government Contracting introduces the legal foundations and sources of law relevant to the procurement process, including authority and ethics. It addresses various legal issues that may develop during the phases of a contract, such as protests, subcontracting considerations, inspection and acceptance issues, fraud and contract termination. Case studies based on federal court and board of contract appeals decisions are incorporated throughout the course to reinforce the foundations of government contact law.

This course is recommended for contracting personnel who work, or are expecting to work, in positions requiring unlimited contracting officer warrants or a Level II Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act (DAWIA) certification.

Recommended prerequisite: To follow DAU requirements, TwentyEighty Strategy Execution recommends students complete the Level I CON courses, CON 214 and CON 215 prior to taking this course.
