One of the many problems associated with filing contract claims appeals against the federal government preparing and defending government contractual claims is that companies fall short of the level of support needed to develop a sound claim that meets Government Contract Disputes Act claim requirements.

  • The agency denies payment simply because the contractor does not submit a detailed claims package that supports payment of damages at the beginning of the contract dispute resolution process.
  • In addition, when it comes to federal contract claims services, companies do not properly assert the required legal theories at the contracting officer level.
  • As a result, the appeals case that challenges the contracting officer’s final decision is already disarmed and court quickly will dismiss new arguments on appeal for lack of jurisdiction.
  • Since judges are expected to base their decisions on the entire record, federal contractors should make sure that before filing an appeal that the record is sufficient enough for the appeals court to hear the case and make a decision.
