Tim Sullivan, Thompson Coburn and Public Contracting Institute

Subcontractors live in a sort of netherworld. They often don't deal directly with the government, and they're subject to capriciousness by the primes. Tim Sullivan is a veteran of the contracting world and writer of the blog, 10 Myths of Government Contracting. In today's installment, Sullivan tackles myth number four: It's better to work as a subcontractor because our company won't be exposed directly to the government the way a prime is. He spoke with Tom Temin on the Federal Drive.

For the next nine Tuesdays, we'll be talking about these myths with him. In today's installment, Sullivan joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss myth number two: that you should always lodge a protest.

Joe Petrillo, Procurement Attorney, Petrillo & Powell PLLC

Contracting officers have a lot of authority when it comes to deciding who wins federal contracts, but they don't have unlimited discretion. That's what the contracting officer who awarded a deal to USIS found out. In a sustaining protest, the Government Accountability Office says the contracting officer should have paid more attention to allegations of fraud against the company. In this week's Legal Loop segment, Procurement Attorney Joe Petrillo joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss this case.
