Successful Strategies for Filing Requests for Equitable Adjustments (REAs) and Claims  

Federal government contracts are not perfect when awarded.  During performance, contract changes may be required to fix inaccurate or defective specifications, react to newly encountered circumstances, or modify the work to ensure the contract meets government requirements.  Any changes made to a government contract can force a contractor to perform more work, or to perform work in a manner that increases a contractor’s costs. Unfortunately, the parties do not always agree on the scope, value, or even the existence of a contract change. As such, contract changes account for a significant portion of contract litigation. This class will provide an overview of the contract disputes process and outline strategies that contractors can use to successfully file REAs and Claims.
