Tim Sullivan's series of “Ten Commandments” articles, which detail critical information and insights for companies that contract with the federal government or those that are looking for new opportunities, are available on Federal News Radio’s website. The 10 posts originally appeared on the blog of the Public Contracting Institute, a business that offers accredited training for government contracts professionals.
Federal News Radio has also reached out to Tim to discuss other issues related to government contracting, including a recent interview about the reopening of the comment period for proposed rules affecting small business contractors. In his interview, Tim expressed some serious concerns about the complexities of the proposed rules and the burdens they could impose on small businesses that must comply with them and government agencies that must enforce them. Tim stated that the proposed rules will likely require significant clarifications before being finalized.
Tim is the chair of Thompson Coburn’s Government Contracts Group and counsels clients in all facets of government contract law, including bid protests, contract claims and litigation.
