This firm counsels all types of public entities on compliance with the Local Public Contracts Law and the Pay to Play laws.
The State has been focusing attention on the use of Best Practices for the award of all service contracts. They have imposed strict oversight requirements on a public entity that failed to comply with bid requirements. We have formulated best practices templates and guidance for public entities. There is a need to be aware of the interplay between Pay to Play requirements for contracts that are exempt from bidding under the Local Public Contracts Law. We provide that guidance and procedures for public agencies. Our firm’s expertise includes drafting bid specifications, contracts and requests for proposals. We have defended our clients in bid protests and other challenges to the award of contracts.
