Government contracts

Selling to local, state and federal governments can be good business. But to succeed, you need to know how to navigate government procurement procedures — and how to protect your interests when problems arise. Our attorneys can lead the way.

We understand the government procurement process from the inside out. Indeed, Practice Group Chair Scott North was instrumental in reforming Ohio’s procurement procedures during his tenure as Ohio Governor Strickland’s Special Representative on Regulatory Reform and Jim King, head of the firm’s government contracts practice, performed procurement work during his tenure with the Office of the Secretary of the Army.

With our broad base of experience, we can help with procurement issues at the local, state and federal level.

Let us help:

  • Respond to governmental competitive selection opportunities such as requests for proposals (RFPs), the state term schedule, cooperative purchase agreements, reverse auctions, strategic sourcing, bid requests and set-aside and preference programs
  • Advise as to Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) issues
  • Secure and maintain certification as minority business enterprises, women-owned businesses and disadvantaged businesses
  • Fulfill employment diversity requirements
  • Defend challenges to contract awards
  • Contest lost contracts

From construction contracts to supply contracts to contracts related to providing the full spectrum of services needed to keep government agencies going, we use our experience to help you achieve your governmental sales goals.
