Indispensable to anyone involved in negotiating, auditing, and litigating contracts subject to the Truth in Negotiations Act (TINA), Defective Pricing Handbook provides extensive background information on the rules governing defective pricing, including the rules of disclosing cost and pricing data found in the Act. Coverage includes:

  • The purpose and history of TINA
  • Exceptions to TINA
  • Cost or pricing data
  • Reasonable availability of data
  • Disclosure and government knowledge of data
  • Government reliance upon defective data
  • Causation of a price increase
  • Certification of data
  • Subcontractor data
  • Damages
  • Offsets and price reductions
  • Litigation and proof in defective pricing cases
  • Procedural issues in defective pricing cases
  • Government audit rights

A recent reviewer called this book "the definitive text on TINA" and "essential reading for all who are involved in large and complex acquisitions and all who want to understand one of the most confounding rules in government contracting."
