The Navy requested a decision regarding whether it should reimburse a firm for support services for specific pieces of government-owned equipment. GAO held that the Navy should pay the claimant on a quantum meruit basis, since: (1) it was evident that a pattern was established whereby the claimant would continue providing services, because contract negotiations usually extended into the contract year; (2) the claimant provided its services in good faith; (3) the Navy received and accepted its support services; and (4) the claim amounts appeared reasonable. Accordingly, the claim was allowed.
