David Wise, Director of Physical Infrastructure Issues, GAO

A Veterans Affairs hospital construction project is shaping up to be a classic failure. Late and over-budget, the billion dollar Denver facility is only 62 percent complete. And now a court rules, the contractor could legally walk away from the whole thing. Judges for the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals say the VA has acted in bad faith. This mess has not escaped notice of the Government Accountability Office. David Wise, the director of physical infrastructure issues at GAO, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain more of what went wrong and whether it can be salvaged.

Joe Petrillo, Procurement Attorney, Petrillo & Powell PLLC

When awarding a competitively-bid contract on past performance, you better make sure you look carefully at references the bidders provide.

The Government Accountability Office agreed. In this week's Legal Loop Segment, procurement attorney Joe Petrillo of Petrillo and Powell tells Tom Temin on the Federal Drive about the lessons learned from the case.
