A contractor’s unexcused present or prospective failure to perform in accordance with the contract’s terms, specifications, or delivery schedule may constitute a contractual default giving rise to the government’s right to terminate the contract for default.

A termination for default is a drastic sanction what should not be imposed upon a contractor unless there is good cause and solid evidence.

It is the government’s burden to prove, by a preponderance of the evidence, that a termination for default is proper.
