Defective specifications in a federal contract can cost businesses a significant amount of money. Companies that conduct business with the federal government should be able to expect that design specifications in a contract are commercially appropriate for the task at hand. For instance, if the specifications provided by the government create an unsafe condition, a contractor may be entitled to an equitable adjustment.
Defects can significantly impede construction contracts. For instance, if the contract designates a location on a military location contaminated with unexploded ordinance as a borrow pit, the defect is a commercially inappropriate specification. Similarly, a flawed survey indicating the wrong level of the water table can create increased costs in the construction project. Defective specifications can impair the value of a transaction. For example, a contract to clear and sell lumber that is contaminated by lead from a prior use as a target range will result in costs for the contractor instead of profits.

The government has a duty to ensure that design specifications in a contract are reasonably accurate and will produce satisfactory results if followed properly. Defects, errors and omissions in government specifications that result in financial harm to a contractor are the focus of the defective specification practice at Curran Legal.
