Government contract attorneys can be essential in assisting with navigating the solicitation and procurement process, including ensuring that best value bids are compliant with the Federal Acquisition Regulations or FAR. Each stage of the government contract process can be assisted by a knowledgeable civil attorney. After the bidding process has begun, businesses must be aware of potential bid protest options before the GAO. After procurements have been awarded, companies must be knowledgeable about the need for potential claims to the contracting officer or to the Court of Federal Claims.
Additionally, even non-bidding parties such as construction sub-contractors must take advantage and be aware of federal payment and performance bonds under the Federal Miller Act that must be posted by the general contractor that can assist in ensuring payment to the sub-contractors. Lien rights are different for public projects than they are for private projects and it is essential to know the difference and to protect your rights against the general contractor and the surety.
