Be aware that the procedural requirements of Virginia Code Section 15.2-1246 [pdf] apply to appeals denying claims arising under contracts covered by the Virginia Public Procurement Act, according to the recent case, Viking Enterprise, Inc. v. County of Chesterfield, Record No. 080215 (Jan. 16, 2009) [pdf].

In Viking Enterprise, Viking entered into a written contract with Chesterfield County to construct a fire station. The County insisted that Viking had to remove and replace part of a concrete floor. Although Viking believed the floor could be repaired without removing and re-pouring the concrete, it complied with the County’s request and submitted a claim for $86,531 for additional work. The County’s board of supervisors denied the claim on July 25, 2005, and the clerk of the County’s board of supervisors gave Viking written notice of that denial in a letter dated August 2, 2005.
