Government Contract Dispute & Claims Lawyers

Did you know that:

  • Contracting officers deny 38% of claims because they do not meet the Tucker Act and Contract Disputes Act requirements.
  • Government contracting officers may not always tell you that your claim does not meet the Contract Disputes Act of 1978 requirements?
  • Agencies can literally wait until appeal to ASBCA, CBCA or Court of Federal Claims and then assert a defense that your claim does not meet CDA requirements?
  • Contracting officer’s continuing to ask for additional information or trying to offer low settlement does NOT by itself allow you to file an appeal?
  • There could be available remedies for breach of contract?

Tips for Federal Government Contract Disputes Act of 1978 Claims

Should you always add FAR certification language to all submissions?

Yes. regardless of whether a government contractor submits a request for equitable adjustment or traditional claim under the Contract Disputes Act, 41 USC 71, they should always insert the certification language.

Are requests for equitable adjustment – CDA claims under 41 USC 71?

No. Depending upon the contents of the request for equitable adjustment, the submission to the contracting officer may not meet the CDA requirements under 41 USC 71. If not, framed correctly, contractors find out too late (sometimes on appeal), that their efforts are fruitless.
