The enormous volume of government contract cancellations requires a fuller understanding by contractors of the principles of securing fair compensation promptly for their charges if they are to have funds to reconvert their plants and operate them successfully. As the Director of Contract Settlement stated in a recent report to Congress, "The contracting agencies alone cannot do the contract settlement job. Contractors, too, must be willing and able to do their part. To be adequately prepared, contractors must be able (1) to make out claims and (2) to process claims of their subcontractors and suppliers."
