Public Contracting and Procurement

Legislative Representation

The framework of federal and state procurement processes is established by statutes.  Regulations promulgated by executive agencies then implement the statutory requirements and provide the mechanism that governs how contracts are awarded and federal and state funds are spent.  New legislation also plays an important role by developing and funding policy initiatives in support of scientific and medical research and development, public safety and transportation projects, education initiatives, and other endeavors, all of which are then fulfilled through contract awards.  Representation at the legislative stage often is critical to the contracting interests of businesses, universities, and non-profits, because legislation may create, expand, or derail contracting opportunities or increase the risks involved in performing public contract work.  Our attorneys are skilled at providing representation and guidance at the legislative stage.
