Feldman and Stewart Successful at the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals
California partners Ian R. Feldman and Meredith D. Stewart secured a dismissal of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ (the “Corps”) claim for over $560,000 in excess reprocurement costs against a subcontractor client arising out of the installation of 2,273 window treatments at the Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Center in Aurora, Colorado. The project has had a long history of delays, which in turn, required direct congressional oversight.
The Corps terminated our client’s subcontract and the contracting officer issued a decision assessing over $560,000 in excess reprocurement costs. On behalf of the client, we appealed the contracting officer’s decision to the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals in Falls Church, Virginia. During a hearing on June 12, 2018, both sides presented their case, which included three witnesses and thorough digital presentations. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Corps voluntarily agreed to withdraw its claim, in its entirety, with prejudice.
