Very few federal contracts are completed without some sort of delay occurring, but who is liable for the resulting costs? Before you can determine liability for project delays, you have to understand the framework that federal courts use to analyze delays on government contracts. In this webinar experienced government contracts attorneys Maria Panichelli and Michael Richard will explain how to distinguish delays and suspensions from disruption. We will also explain the different types of delay: compensable, excusable and concurrent delays. We will walk you through the process and explain how to establish government liability for delays. We will also cover the common pitfalls contractors run into in pursuing a delay claim, including the effect of releases and waivers in contract modifications and pacing issues. Finally, we will discuss the various types of damages that may be recoverable as a result of government caused suspensions and delays, including general conditions and unabsorbed home office overhead.
