July 2020 Professional Development Meeting: "Contracts and COVID-19" with James O. Birr

Contracts play a vital role in project management. They are legally binding devices which, if properly drafted, define the scope of the work, the parties’ roles and responsibilities, and mitigate and allocate losses. Because of the current worldwide pandemic related to COVID-19, it is important to understand how the doctrines of impossibility of performance and frustration of purpose may affect contractual obligations. This presentation will provide a foundation of important contract provisions to consider to ensure project success and minimize potentialconflict.
