The Government's Good Faith and Fair Dealing Duty to Government Contractors - Set-Aside Alert


One of the biggest challenges federal contractors face these days is the time agencies are taking to make decisions that impact the contractors' bottom lines.

These delays can be particularly damaging to firms performing government contracts that are in limbo while decisions are pending on routine contract administrative matters. Because such delays can have a significant impact on the timely, successful and profitable performance of a contract, contractors often have good reason to question whether the government is fulfilling its end of the bargain. They should know that the government has a duty of good faith and fair dealing, which may be considered breached if the government hinders the contractor's performance on the contract.
