If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)

Sometimes a contractor is unable to deliver the required goods or services according to the terms of their contract.  If the reasons for delivery issues are truly out of the contractor’s control, and not due to their fault or negligence, the Government may consider this an “excusable delay”.

Kevin and Paul discuss excusable delays (per FAR 49.401 and 52.249-14) and importance of documenting the causes of delays in order to avoid termination of the contract.
