This treatise features extensive coverage of the law and regulation of the business of government contracting and federal acquisition. Government Contracts: Law, Administration and Procedure addresses nearly every aspect of government contract law and practice, with references to the history and policies underlying current principles as well as current references to applicable statutes, regulations and case decisions. More than a mere "case finder" or primary source compilation, this treatise provides a thorough discussion from experienced practitioners that places case law and regulations in the context most useful to attorneys, contract administrators and other professionals. Topics discussed include:

•  Allowable and unallowable costs
•  Contract officer responsibilities
•  Performance
•  What to do when stipulated performance becomes impossible
•  Excusable delay
•  Bid submission procedures
•  Profit margins

This publication also features a comprehensive set of forms. Along with certain standard forms published by the government, Government Contracts: Law, Administration and Procedure also contains typical practice forms, including sample filings for use in government contract adversary proceedings in the Federal Courts, the agency boards of contract appeals and the General Accounting Office. It also includes forms for non-adversary use, including those related to industrial security.

First published 1962.
