§ 2260.051. CLAIM FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT; NOTICE. (a) A
contractor may make a claim against a unit of state government for
breach of a contract between the unit of state government and the
contractor. The unit of state government may assert a counterclaim
against the contractor.
(b) A contractor must provide written notice to the unit of
state government of a claim for breach of contract not later than
the 180th day after the date of the event giving rise to the claim.
(c) The notice must state with particularity:
(1) the nature of the alleged breach;
(2) the amount the contractor seeks as damages; and
(3) the legal theory of recovery.
(d) A unit of state government must assert, in a writing
delivered to the contractor, any counterclaim not later than the
60th day after the date of notice under Subsection (b). A unit of
state government that does not comply with this subsection waives
