[Claim for Remission of Liquidated Damages]
B-254610: Apr 20, 1994
- Full Report:
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and a firm requested a decision regarding whether NLRB could remit a portion of the liquidated damages assessed against the contractor. GAO held that NLRB: (1) withheld certain fees from the contractor because it made numerous late deliveries during the first 2 months of the contract; and (2) could remit a portion of the liquidated damages, since it provided only 1-day advance notice of the contract. Accordingly, the claim was allowed.
