Risk exists in everyday business operations for all of us, but it is not by itself a negative condition. When properly managed, risk is appropriately balanced against our business opportunities and the financial and other rewards that allow our nonprofits to be successful. During this webinar, the speaker will help you understand:
– the four methods of contract risk management (avoidance, transfer, minimization, and acceptance); and
– which method(s) may work best for you in a given situation.
Speaker: Brett Steele, Habitat for Humanity
Thank you to Venable LLP for providing this resource library on government grants for use by our clients. The resources included here are intended to assist organizations that receive government grants or enter into cooperative agreements with government agencies. It includes articles and presentations grouped by categories relevant to a government grant or cooperative agreement. The site is also a library of notable regulations, guidance, and information released by various government agencies and actors, past and present.
This webcast provides guidance to nonprofits interested in government contracts about how to get started with compliance requirements under both federal and D.C. law. It discusses both why compliance is important, and the steps organizations must take to ensure they are in compliance.
Please note that in addition to the legal disclaimer above, this article contains information that is based, in part, on the laws of the District of Columbia. As a result, some of the information may not be appropriate for organizations operating outside the District of Columbia.
Nonprofits, just like for-profit businesses, enter into agreements, whether written or oral, with sponsors, vendors, consultants, and others on a regular basis. Do you know when you need a contract, and how to protect your interests when you have one? During this webcast, a lawyer experienced in all aspects of contract disputes will help you understand the basics of contracting, including:
• what is a contract, and when do you need one
• what is the difference between oral and written contracts
• what to do if the other side fails to perform their contract
• what do to if the other side claims you have breached an agreement
• pitfalls in employment and consulting contracts
• other contracting dos and don’ts
