Smith Currie has counseled companies in dealing with the unique aspects of government contracts and construction law for more than 50 years. We help contractors prepare to win and successfully perform contracts both directly with the federal agencies and with the many prime contractors that support them.
Smith Currie provides legal representation at all stages of the federal government contracting process. We regularly represent clients before the General Accountability Office (GAO) in bid protests and bid mistake claims involving federal projects. We work with clients to ensure their compliance with all applicable regulations and policies related to the Small Business Act, including preference programs such as the 8(a) program for small, disadvantaged businesses, the HUBZone empowerment contracting program for small businesses in historically underutilized business zones, the women-owned and veteran-owned small business programs, and agency small business set-aside programs. We also assist large businesses in matters relating to their small business subcontracting plans.
Following contract award, we provide advice and representation during the administration of federal contracts to ensure full compliance with both contract obligations and federal regulations. We prosecute client claims for equitable adjustments or breach of contract before the military and civilian agency boards of contract appeals and the Court of Federal Claims. We also defend clients against government claims of noncompliance and assist clients on matters such as unfavorable past performance evaluations, labor and prevailing wage compliance reviews and related audits.
In addition, we provide federal contractor clients with advice regarding wage-hour and labor matters under federal laws such as the Davis-Bacon Act and the Service Contract Act. Combining our collective expertise gives the firm’s clients timely assistance with any problems that they may encounter on a government contract.
