John Palguta, vice president for policy at the Partnership for Public Service, joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss if the bill is a good idea.

Joe Petrillo, Procurement Attorney, Petrillo & Powell PLLC

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.
