Abstract:

The purpose of this research is to analyze Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals decisions over the past two years relating to disputes in U.S. Government construction contracts to identify potential weaknesses in both government and contractor organizations. The project will identify categories of contract disputes as well as patterns of contract administration weaknesses for both the government and the contractor. The purpose is to highlight deficiencies in both government and contractor actions and use them to enlighten contracting officers to help preclude future litigation in this area. 1 table, 16 figures, 15 refs.
