Terminations for Convenience: Maximizing Recovery

1h 2m

Created on October 20, 2016



Attorney Hilary S. Cairnie and Aaron Raddock, Director of Government Contracts & Grants Advisory Services at BPO, lay out the issues that may arise in case of a termination for convenience by the federal government. Cairnie and Raddock begin by explaining which contracts could be subject to such a termination and reviewing relevant contract language and Federal Acquisition Regulation provisions. Afterwards they review the duties both the contractor and the Government must undertake during the termination process, and lay out strategic issues contractors should consider before entering settlement negotiations with the Government. Finally, they discuss ways to ensure contractors can recover the maximum amount of their allowable costs, as well as lost profits, and how contractors may seek relief from an undesirable settlement.
