Provide ongoing support to a major banking contractor by challenging cost disallowances by the U.S. government that could interfere with the bank’s ability to provide critical banking services to military members stationed around the world.
For an electronics supplier to a prime contractor for a major U.S. Navy program, we appealed in the prime contractor’s name from a final decision finding defective pricing due to the alleged nondisclosure of certain improvement-curve data that the Navy contended would have led the Navy to conclude that the decline in labor costs would have been steeper than the parties assumed in negotiations. After the close of discovery, we negotiated a favorable settlement.
Recovered disallowed severance costs paid by a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) contractor to its employees when the contractor exited the contract and the employees went to work for a successor contractor. The costs were unallowable under the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), but the contract contained an unusual provision, personally approved by President Truman, making virtually all costs allowable. We handled the preparation of the initial claim, the contract appeal to the Court of Federal Claims, and the appeal to the Federal Circuit, at the end of which our client recovered every penny of its severance outlay, plus interest.
Advised client on structuring employee secondment agreements so as to permit reimbursement of costs of shared employees and associated indirect costs under a secondment agreement during a contractual novation process in connection with an M&A transaction, enabling the client to orderly transfer employees and facilities to the purchaser and ensure continued reimbursement up to the point of final transfer.
Advised our client regarding the circumstances in which bid and proposal costs may be claimed as reimbursable costs under a USAID contract, despite agency directive purporting to make virtually all such costs unallowable.
