Government contracting is heavily regulated, so government contractors often need legal counsel to understand the competitive landscape where they do business. Because issues fall across a broad spectrum of regulations, programs, and procurements, it is difficult to know what to ask. PilieroMazza PLLC has served as a strategic partner to government contractors and commercial businesses for over thirty years, and Tony Franco is a senior partner overseeing PilieroMazza’s Government Contracts Group. This session will address top legal questions he has encountered from government contractors, covering queries like:

  • What does a small business do when a procurement agency does not appear to be following the Rule of Two?

  • What should a contractor do when a proposal is due on a defective or ambiguous solicitation and the agency has not answered all offeror questions?

  • Can a small business continue bidding on task orders when it has outgrown its size?

  • How do I challenge a poor past performance rating?

  • What can you use for past performance through a new joint venture?
