Is there any case law, FAR, or other reference that supports considering the contract activities that extend beyond the beneficial occupancy date as float for the purposes of time impact analysis?
The schedule submitted by the contractor should include all contract requirements and should have been approved by the Government. Whatever was the orginal approved schedule is what you will be based off, not the updates. If any of those activities were impacted by the Government caused delay and were on the critical path then the contractor is owed additional time. The UFGS schedule section states that the last activity will be the CCD with the only predecessor being the project completion milestone which constitutes substantial completion. Refer back to the contract to see what exactly it says in regards to how to deal with those activities.
