Government Contracts and Assistance Awards
With more than 90 combined years of experience, our attorneys handle not only domestic agreements and operational matters, but also those involving foreign government agencies, global funds and other intergovernmental organizations. We have represented clients in agreements with the Department for International Development (DFID) in the United Kingdom, Germany’s Agency for Technical Cooperation (GTZ) and the Swedish International Development Corporation (SIDA), among others.
We have extensive experience in all phases of financial assistance and procurement, including competition/teaming, solicitation, evaluation, negotiation, award, contracting, administration, audits, compliance, freedom of information, and arbitration and litigation. Our firm has unique expertise in the procurement and assistance practices of bilateral official development assistance agencies, the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, various agencies of the United Nations, and contracting agencies in developing and transitional countries.
S&O serves as government contracts and grants counsel on a standing or periodic basis to more nonprofit organizations in their aid-related operations than any other law firm in the world. Our advice can be across-the-board, covering all awards, or limited to certain types of awards or issues. Our practice includes advice to professional and technical consulting firms on international aid-related procurement and assistance matters.
