A contract canceled due to fault of the administration must give rise to compensation of the holder of the contract
Rule n ° 1: the rule of law
The contract holder whose contract has been canceled by the administrative judge because of fault attributable to the contracting authority may be held liable. Example: the administrative judge cancels a contract on the grounds that the contracting authority has not indicated how to implement the criteria for judging the offers.
Rule 2: the methods of calculating the loss
The holder of the canceled contract may claim compensation for the damage attributable to the fault of the contracting authority. As such, he may request the payment of a part of the sums he has committed in view of executing the contract; on the other hand, the loss of profit, that is to say, the net profit that he could have hoped to release if he had been able to execute the contract until its end.
