Why Certify If the False Claims Act Could Apply?

January 24, 2017, Federal Contracts Report

Jason Workmaster is quoted in a Federal Contracts Report article regarding claim certification. According to Workmaster, “Since we have the False Claims Act, I think the CDA [Contract Disputes Act] certification requirement is redundant and needlessly complicates the process. Claims, in my opinion, should be considered on their merits — without getting bogged down in whether the claim was certified or not.’’ Workmaster adds that certification “only matters to government lawyers down the road who are looking for a way to avoid addressing the merits of the claim.”
