Doing business with the federal government directly or as a subcontractor can be rewarding but has unique challenges and complications. The legal and regulatory hurdles encountered in government contracting require that a company doing business in this market be well informed and astute with regard to the numerous regulatory compliance requirements.
Whether it is contract obligations, business systems requirements, employment agreements, proposals and pricing, claims, cost accounting, applicability of the Buy-American Act or Trade Agreements Act, mandatory disclosures, changes, disputes, or simply getting paid, numerous complicated regulations must be well understood and complied with. Even unintentional violations not only can have a devastating impact on your business, but can also result in fines and imprisonment.
