Contracting with the government can be a complex, bewildering process involving complicated laws and regulations which are not only frequently changed by Congress and the executive agencies, but are constantly being interpreted and modified through agency guidelines and the decisions of courts and administrative judges. 

Kelley & Kelley offers its extensive knowledge and experience in all aspects of government contracting to help its clients avoid the pitfalls that abound.  The firm's partners have advised government contractors at every stage of the contracting process. Just a few examples are:

  • assisting in preparing bids and proposals
  • prosecuting and defending against bid protests
  • preparing and pursuing requests for equitable adjustment, including claims for delay and disruption
  • responding to allegations by government auditors
  • advising contractors on questions of cost allowability and allocability
  • negotiating with government contracting officers and auditors
  • prosecuting contractor claims under the Contract Disputes Act before agency boards of contract appeals and the Court of Federal Claims
  • defending contractors against allegations brought under the Truth in Negotiations Act and the False Claims Act
  • conducting internal investigations of potential violations of procurement laws and regulations
  • advising contractors and financing institutions on the financing of government contracts, including issues concerning the Assignment of Claims Act and the Anti-Assignment Act

Mr. Kelley has represented government-contract clients in a number of matters that have resulted in reported decisions. A few of these decisions are Rockwell International Corporation, 99-1 BCA 30,345 (March 30, 1999); Rockwell International Corporation, 97-2 BCA 29,322 (October 14, 1997); and Rockwell International Corporation, 97-1 BCA 28,814 (March 12, 1997).

The firm's partners have also written on numerous government contracting issues. For a recent article on a major development in whistleblower suits, see "The Qui Tam Provisions of the False Claims Act Pass Constitutional Muster."
