Procurement of Goods and Services
Governments, at all levels, purchase millions dollars worth of goods and services from outside vendors. This business can be very profitable for private companies who can navigate the intricacies of governmental contracting.
The procurement process is complex. It requires knowledge and experience in ranging from drafting, negotiating and lobbying to litigating procurement issues. The legal issues surrounding public procurement are local in nature because each public body has a unique set of rules and regulations governing their procurement process which must be followed precisely.
