Commemorating the Fortieth Anniversary of the Contract Disputes Act of 1978: What are We Doing Right, and What Can We Do Better?
BCABA and The George Washington University Law School Government Procurement Law Program
Faculty Conference Center
Washington, DC 20052
To celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the Contract Disputes Act of 1978 (CDA), The Board of Contract Appeals Bar Association (BCABA) and the Government Procurement Law Program of The George Washington University Law School will host a special free program in Washington, D.C.
Partner Terry Elling will moderate the first panel discussion, which will discuss the “mechanics” of practice before the different boards and cover issues such as: the appropriate scope and timing of discovery; whether the government should be required to file the complaint in appeals involving affirmative government claims; and the flexibility of the various boards’ practices with respect to binding and nonbinding Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).
