Prequalification in Government Construction Contracts

March 22

Avoid common government contracting pitfalls that lead to suspension and debarment proceedings.

Doing business with the federal government presents unique challenges for contractors. In addition to standard hurdles of corporate formation and maintenance facing every business, government contractors must comply with an ever-changing set of rules and regulations. Contractors that fail in any of these areas are subject to a non-responsibility determination and lost contracting opportunities. This material covers the fundamentals of responsibility under the Federal Acquisition Regulation. Contractors will also learn practical strategies for compliance as well as what to do in the event of adverse agency actions like suspension and debarment.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to define qualification, prequalification, and responsibility under the Federal Acquisition Regulation.
  • You will be able to identify the common credentials used in agency responsibility determinations.
  • You will be able to recognize common government contracting pitfalls that lead to suspension and debarment proceedings.
  • You will be able to discuss practical strategies for challenging agency non-responsibility determinations.
