To address the unique challenges facing federal contractors during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are launching the COVID-19 Contractors' Toolkit. The goal is to provide relevant and useful information for government contractors about contract requirements, best practices, and advocacy options. While every
business will have its own unique challenges, it’s our hope to offer general information to guide decision making for federal contractors in these unprecedented times.
Check back regularly as we cover various topics bearing on federal contractors impacted by COVID-19 prevention measures. We’ll also regularly update the site to discuss rapidly changing legal news affecting government contractors.
