Government Procurement & Competitive Selection

This practice area focuses on government procurement, contracts, grants and preference programs such as Buy Ohio, MBE and EDGE.  Our attorneys are also well versed in Ohio’s equal opportunity in construction program, public records and ethics laws.  Our attorneys have over 20 years of experience with competitive selection (ITBs, RFQs and RFPs for goods, services and information technology systems) state term schedules, direct contracts and negotiating and drafting contract terms and conditions.

We have assisted many clients in their successful protest of a contract award where the contract was required to be let by competitive selection.  In addition, our clients have benefited from our knowledge and experience by having us review their bids and proposals prior to submission.  Finally, we have routinely advised and guided clients through the EDGE certification process.
