As any contractor doing work for the Federal government will tell you, being awarded the contract is only the beginning. Performance presents a whole new series of challenges. The Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and its supplementary regulations impose a host of obligations on contractors, and can impact the ways in which a contractor performs a contract. These rules and regulations also dictate the ways in which contractors can seek compensation for unanticipated costs incurred on the job. In this session, two key strategies for seeking compensation when something goes wrong post-award are discussed: Requests for Equitable Adjustment and Claims. 

This class examines key differences between the two and strategies for maximizing a contractor’s chances of success when making claims against the Federal Government. Further, this class walks through the Contract Disputes Act claims and appeals process, and provide strategies for learning how to maximize a contractor’s chances of success when making claims against the Federal government.  

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the difference between Requests for Equitable Adjustment and Claims under the Contract Disputes Act
  2. Learn the regulatory requirements for filing either a Request for Equitable Adjustment or a Claim
  3. Become familiar with the process of appealing a Claim
  4. Gain strategies for maximizing success in filing claims against the Federal government
