Global Reach Over 30 Years of Federal Government Procurement Law Experience. Compliance with federal government procurement law regulations can make or break a contractor’s success either at the bidding stage for public contracts, performance or closeout stages of the federal procurement process. Failure to follow regulations or specific litigation procedures can cause grave harm to contractors.
Approaching government contracting issues means having an understanding of the various aspects of procurement law. For example, resolving a small business set-aside dispute could also mean understanding the order and priority for 8a companies or HUBZone preferences.
We find that many cases in the federal courts are dismissed because the contractor’s corporate attorney may not quite understand the nuances involved to adequately resolve the dispute.
Complying with the various government contracting regulations can pose a serious problem which makes contracts liable for damages or even criminal liability.

Government Procurement Process and Compliance
The procurement process starts with the agency assessing its requirements and conducting sufficient market research. This level of research helps the agency to decide how and when it will procure services or products. The agency contracting officer will make a decision on whether to set aside procurements for small businesses or use some other vehicle.
Once the planning process is done, the agency will draft its requirements and then publically display the requirements for the public to bid on. The solicitation will advise bidders on how their proposals will be evaluated.
Once the government receives the proposals, the process will entail an evaluation of offerors’ proposals. When the government makes a source selection decision, it will announce the successful bidder.
The last part of the federal procurement contracting process allows unsuccessful bidders to challenge the agency’s decision through a bid protest.
