Trends and Issues with the CDA "Statute of Limitations"

This event has already occurred.

Event Overview

In 1979, the Contract Disputes Act (CDA) was passed by Congress, which provides procedures for stating and handling claims by either the government or the contractor. An area of particular interest has been the six-year statute of limitations and questions over what protections it provides to contractors. Those involved need to be aware of the issues and trends that can impact the government contractor and the rights under the Act.

Please join DHG's Bill Walter and Gary McDonald as well as their special guest Paul Pompeo of Arnold & Porter LLP for a discussion on:

  • Background on the CDA and the six-year Statute of Limitations.
  • When does the six-year clock start?
  • Key interpretations and Board of Appeals decisions.
  • Do Government delays in auditing stop the clock?
