Rumsfeld (July 28, 2006), reverses the ASBCA and confirms that the Service Contract Act Price Adjustments clause, FAR 52.222-43, entitles the contractor to an adjustment for its increased cost of providing health and welfare benefits specified in a collective bargaining agreement, even though the benefits themselves did not change.
