Government Contracting

Specific rules apply to information exchanged and used during the government bid and proposal process. These rules govern employee interactions with the government employees, what information they can access and use in the bid and proposal process and even what kinds of employment discussions an organization can have with government officials who are involved in the procurement process. These restrictions, part of the Procurement Integrity Act (PIA), help ensure that organizations and individuals who are competing for federal contracts are treated equally and are on a level playing field.
