Probably every contracting officer has been tempted to do it. Lowball the size of an acquisition so that it falls under small business rules. Or accept a lowball bid from a contractor that knows better. A part of the Transportation Department tried this with a contractor that was about to graduate from the 8(a) program. Oops. The deal ended up in court. Lots of egg splatter to go around. Procurement attorney Joe Petrillo joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain the case in this week's legal loop segment.

In this week's legal loop segment, Procurement Attorney Joe Petrillo joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive for an explanation.

How much should contractors charge the government for labor for a project? Perhaps not surprisingly, it depends on the type of contract and what the government instructed the contractor to do. It gets murkier when subcontractors are involved. In a long running case between QinetiQ and the General Services Administration, GSA is asking for millions it says the company overcharged. The company sued, saying it was doing what the government asked for. In this week's Legal Loop, procurement attorney Joe Petrillo joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to sort out this highly-watched case.
