Contractors Must Go The Extra Mile For Preaward Review


In Billington Contracting, Inc. (Feb. 28, 2005), the ASBCA dismissed a contractor's claim for differing site conditions under a dredging contract, because documents with the relevant detail on site conditions were referenced in a contract specification and had been available to the contractor for review. The board brushed aside the contractor's complaint that the relevant records were only identified as available some 750 miles from the project site, stating that a contractor is "bound to seek" out such information.
