MISTAKE, MISREPRESENTATION, UNCERTAINTY AND OTHER ISSUES

The dispute board will no doubt have all sorts of situations develop and a common one is where one of the parties, usually the contractor, claims that it either did not understand the full ramifications of the contract it entered into, was mistaken as to some critical issue, that some or all of the terms were uncertain, that essential terms are missing and need to be implied by the DAB, or that the employer just committed fraud/misrepresentation from the start, and varied and sundry other claims all of which are geared to claims for relief from the DAB.
