Know Your Rights: Potential Impacts of COVID-19 on Construction Projects
The COVID-19 (Coronavirus disease) outbreak, and the resulting emergency declarations and quarantines in various cities and countries has the potential to negatively impact construction projects. The extent of the potential impacts on construction projects is unknown, but forward-looking contractors are already planning for possible labor shortages, material delays or unavailability, disruption to supply chains, and other impacts. Although contractors' positions will be dependent on specific contract clauses, it is critical that contractors understand their options in the face of the rapidly changing landscape. In many instances, the critical analysis starts with the "force majeure" clause.

The Truth Behind Truth in Negotiations Requests
Several of our clients have recently received letters from their local Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) offices requesting specific information on their government contract awards, which has raised concern because the letters do not disclose DCAA's purpose, need or intended use of the information requested. Moreover, it is unlikely that contractors have ever seen this specific request in the past. For context, the contract awards for which the DCAA is requesting information should be limited to those contracts where the submission of certified cost or pricing data was required and is being requested for purposes of DCAA's annual audit planning process; which, includes identification of planned DCAA activities and audit type assignments - specifically, in reference to this article, Defective Pricing Audits.
