Federal Construction

The competition for federal construction contracts has changed in recent years. What used to be predominantly procurement through sealed bidding has become requests for proposals that are designed to result in procurement on a "best value basis." The adjustment from competing for awards based on offering the lowest price to competing in an arena where past performance, technical merit, and quality of personnel can be assigned greater weight than price has been a difficult transition for many construction contractors. We advise our clients about how to adapt to the world of contracting by negotiation, and our clients include both prime contractors and subcontractors who perform military and civil works construction projects for federal agencies.

Our Federal Construction Contracting blog, found at, is the only blog that deals exclusively with federal construction contracting and is recognized as one of the most informative online resources for contractors.
