Federal Miller Act
Sometimes, federal contracting officers make mistakes. So do lower court judges. All too often, construction contractors and sureties accept the contracting officer’s or lower court’s decisions without realizing they have another option.
The federal appeal process, and specifically the Federal Miller Act, is designed to give you another chance to present your case before a higher court and to show that the decision made by either an agency official or a lower court judge was erroneous.
If your construction project is owned by the federal government and you find yourself in this situation, contact KMK. We have recovered millions of dollars by successfully utilizing the Federal Miller Act to obtain payment of our construction clients’ receivables due on federally owned construction projects.
