On 9 September 2022, the Principal Director, Defense Pricing and Contracting (DPC) issued a memo titled, "Managing the Effects of Inflation with Existing Contracts." In this memo, DPC provided procedural information on how to process requests for relief for extraordinary circumstances where contractors have sought or may seek an upward adjustment to the price of an existing firm-fixed- price contract to account for current economic conditions, but many questions remain. In this session, our speakers will discuss the statutory and administrative framework of P. L. 85-804 as implemented in FAR part 50.
