Changes and claims arise from a variety of sources, and often, the contractor is entitled to extra costs and/or time extensions. But demonstrating to the government your entitlement to additional compensation in not always clear cut or straightforward. Various federal contract provisions and FAR clauses may support your position, some better than others. Similarly, properly documenting, preparing and submitting your claim may also affect your claims recovery success rates.
