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.

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.
