James J. McCullough speaks to National Law Journal about GSA's termination of Oracle contract

James J. McCullough recently spoke with National Law Journal about the General Services Administration's termination of a contract held by Oracle Corp. The article discusses whether the termination was a result of the Oracle's US$200 million False Claims Act settlement with GSA six months prior.

“The Federal Supply Schedule cancellation clause is standard in all GSA schedule contracts but it is not often used,” said Mr. McCullough. “However, Oracle’s recent settlement of the civil False Claims Act case may have been a factor in the decision to cancel the Oracle contract since only the GSA can make a determination of present responsibility for Federal Supply Schedule contractors, and GSA has said that it continuously monitors contractor performance and contract compliance throughout the life of the schedule contract.”
