This webinar discusses the definition of a differing site condition and why there is a need for a Differing Site Conditions clause in a construction contract. The webinar sets forth the history and purpose of the clause and examines the modern Differing Site Conditions clauses and the changes over time.
Why should you Attend
This webinar provides a thorough discussion of the Differing Site Conditions clause and how the typical understanding of this 90 year old clause is being eroded by Court and Board decisions. The differing site conditions clause was created by the U.S. Federal government in 1926, in regards to construction contracts. Over the years, the Courts and Boards of Contract Appeals have been slowing changing the interpretation of risk allocation under the clause. A series of Court and Board cases have increased the contractor’s risk concerning differing site conditions.
Many leaders struggle to understand that happiness doesn't equal engagement. Just because an employee is happy because they are provided what they ask for, doesn't mean they are engaged. Entitlement and accountability are two-way streets between leaders and employees and creating an irresistible culture helps easily align which street your team is taking.
Accountability starts with leaders, and entitlement does too, but it doesn't end with leaders and there are daily techniques to ensure team members are stepping into engagement when the door is opened for them.

However, a sound BSA program requires annual updates: board appointed BSA officer, a BSA policy, face to face training, and a system of internal controls (checklists) to monitor for suspicious activity.
Employer federal income tax withholding is intended to collect, throughout the year, the approximate the amount of the employee's tax for the year.

Likewise, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) must be precise or your entry is not going anywhere. Some mistakes are common, others reflect a lack of understanding of how FDA and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) operate a joint program.
Most Regulatory Agencies require firms to have written procedures in place to document production and process controls, better known as batch records. Additionally, there must be written procedures for a batch record review process that demonstrate compliance.
A strong batch record review system is essential in order to properly document all critical processing parameters that go along with the production and manufacture of pharmaceuticals, biologics, medical devices, etc.
This 6-hour virtual seminar includes a presentation of the steps and techniques used to quantify variability in manufacturing processes, and to assure quality products.

One of the most important qualities of a leader is resilience. Today's leaders are getting barraged with roadblocks, let-downs and failed attempts at success. The true grit of a leader is not how they perform during the good times but rather how they display emotional strength, courage and professionalism during the most trying times.
Teams rely on me to be strong, composed and to focus on the intended goals. They needed leaders not to reflect any of the negativity that was surrounding them, but to frame the chaos as an opportunity for everyone to grow. Teams need a leader who will support them and listen to their concerns, but not allow them to stray from what we were trying to accomplish.
For as long as can be remembered, financial markets have thrived under the paradigm that if we do not know future prices, then they must be stochastically determined, therefore Gaussian mathematics is the tool to use. In this webinar, we ask: how sure can we be? Are there no other ways?
Why should you Attend
For people who use directly financial models, or who build or manage them, or for those for whom ideas of stochastic modeling in financial markets percolate into their own work, they probably are accustomed to the good old paradigm. Some even have forgotten to question if anything unknown anything but stochastic.
