What you can do if the government terminates your contract
Businesses often lose government contracts through no fault of their own. That’s because public contracts generally include a “termination for convenience of the government” provision, which gives the agency the right to end a contract when it’s in the government’s interest to do so.
In such cases, the government agency typically is obligated to pay the contractor for various costs or a percentage of the contract price based on the extent of completion of the project. The contractor may also be entitled to recover any legal fees incurred in the termination settlement process.
All too often, however, contractors do not claim all of their allowable costs in a termination for convenience, or they accept unjustified exclusions asserted by the government. The government contract attorneys at Douglas & Boykin make sure you understand what you’re entitled to in a termination for convenience.
