New Presentation Available: The Christian Doctrine

This presentation discusses an interesting topic that is unique to Government contracting. In G.L. Christian and Associates vs. United States (1963), the court held that standard contract clauses established by regulations may be considered as being in every Federal contract. Because the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) is the law, and Government contractors are presumed to be familiar with the FAR, a mandatory contract clause that expresses a significant or deeply ingrained strand of public procurement policy will be incorporated into a Government contract by operation of law, even if the parties omitted it.
