Government contracting agencies deny or challenge your claims over 53% of the time. Preparing and defending claims against the federal government under the CDA is not a simple as you may think. The statutory requirements are sometimes vague. However, when litigation and appeals occur, then you find out the specificity and case law that causes loss of millions of dollars. At this point, it is too late.
Adequately prepare your contract claim: The first thing you want to do when preparing to file a government claim is to find out the deadlines to do so. Next, gather all supporting documentation such as letters to the agency officials, emails, receipts for materials, computation of labor hours. More importantly, you write a narrative of the reasons leading up to the claim and point out specific parts of the contract that create the claim. The more detailed the better.
You must understand the legal requirements for submitting a contract claim. As stated earlier, the Contract Disputes Act (CDA) is generally the underlying law that will protect you on the back end of your claim. As government claims lawyers, we often see that contractors handle the claims process internally. When the contracting officer denies the claim, the company realizes the legal issues that prevent full recovery.
Do you understand what constitutes a final decision by the Contracting Officer? Companies have literally spent tens of thousands of dollars in litigation and appeals just to challenge this point.
- Negotiation is not a final decision under the Disputes Act
- An Agency seeking clarity, although there is delay does not allow you to file an appeal
- The COR has no contracting officer authority
