This session hones in on specific contractor tasks, answering the most frequently asked questions and providing examples of best practices and lessons learned through experience. Attendees will get a brief introduction to the LBC, focused on those Imperatives on which contractors have the most impact, and walking through the specifics of various procedures and tasks.
