In yet another decision, the Court of Federal Claims (“COFC”) has held that the Contract Disputes Act’s 6-year statute of limitations applies to the government, just like it applies to contractors. Back in April, we blogged about the COFC’s decision in Raytheon Company v. United States, COFC No. 09-306C (Apr. 2, 2012) in which the court struck a Government claim as untimely because it was not asserted within six years of when the claim accrued. Now, in Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. v. United States, COFC No. 09-844C et al. (July 18, 2012), the COFC has held that the Government cannot hide behind its administrative procedures to assert that its claims do not “accrue” until those procedures have been completed. Maybe the Government will listen this time.
