We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :)
Please help by posting all issues here.
The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.
exactly. federal contracts are not really contracts. it's a whole different body of law, based on contract law, but with the underlying assumption that you're dealing with a sovereign entity that can do whatever it wants in that kind of transaction. And if you don't like what they're doing, that's just tough, because they can always just cancel the deal midway through "for the convenience of the Government", and that's all the reason they need. They still have to pay up, though because of that Fifth Amendment "takings" thing, you know. There are two huge sets of regulations that actually control it, the "Federal Acquisition Regulations" and the "Defense F.A.R.S.", published in the Federal Code of Administrative Regulations.
