Contractors’ Rights and Remedies in the Wake of the Shutdown

Contractors’ Rights and Remedies in the Wake of the Shutdown
It's official – the longest federal government shutdown in history is over.  (And the next one is possibly right around the corner.)

For contractors whose work and payments were affected by the shutdown, the questions now are: what can we get paid for and how do we get it?   This “nuts and bolts” webinar will discuss contractors’ basic entitlement to price/cost and schedule adjustments and the procedure for pursuing these remedies under a variety of clauses most commonly used or triggered during the shutdown.  While each contractor’s situation is necessarily unique and best addressed on a contract-by-contract basis, this webinar will provide a basic framework and issue-spotting tools to help the contracting community identify opportunities for recovery to mitigate the harmful effects of the shutdown. 


Please join Robert K. Tompkins and David S. Black, Co-Chairs of Holland & Knight LLP’s Government Contracts Team, for a discussion of contractor rights and remedies in the wake of the government shutdown.


This timely webinar will help you understand:


  • What impacts, obvious and not-so-obvious, did the shutdown cause?
  • When costs of carrying employees idled by the shutdown are recoverable?
  • What other kinds of increased costs arising from de-mobilizing and remobilizing a contractor’s workforce are allowable?
  • What is the basic format and supporting documentation of requests or claims?
  • What are the key timeframes?
  • What happens when a contractor worked in excess of contract funding?
  • What should a contractor do if the Government shuts down again in February?
