Due to the nature of this action and the lack of clear circumstance we strongly advise you to consult with legal counsel and your contracting officer prior to making any decisions regarding this matter.
Open full Question Details
Several issues are involved with this question. First it's not clear if the contract closeout procedures have been completed since the original file is not available. Also, it is not clear if the contract included a T&M CLIN in the original contract and if the contractor complied with the original terms of the contract.
You have not mentioned the reason for termination, e.g., end of term or default, etc. Due to the many unknowns, your scenario requires legal guidance.
