Brent Carney, Esq., was a featured speaker at the Association of Environmental Authorities 2018 Annual Meeting and Conference (at Bally’s, Atlantic City) on the topic, “Getting It Right:   Pre-Qualification for Bids and Mandatory Contract Change Language.”  This presentation helped attendees with compliance in two important areas:  contracts and bid pre-qualification by the review of new law in Chapter 317 enacted earlier this year that requires certain clauses about site conditions, suspension of work, quantity changes and changes in character of work to be included in contracts.  The presentation also discussed the success that Brent has had with fast-tracking mandatory minimum qualifications in bid specification through the required DCA process.
