Vetting the acquisition of a federal contractor requires all the elements of traditional M&A due-diligence – i.e., boxes to check after reviewing real estate, labor, tax, environmental, intellectual property and litigation matters, etc. But in view of the highly regulated environment in which federal contractors toil (whether for DoD or a non-defense agency), the “M&A audit” should also cover a robust list of issues peculiar to the industry.
The K&C Defense Industry Team hosted complimentary webinar where they reviewed the key due diligence issues unique to the federal contracting industry, including attention to novation requirements, pending bids and proposals, small business limitations, security clearances, restrictions on foreign ownership, subcontracts/teaming agreements, joint ventures, GSA Federal Supply Schedule contracts and more. K&C attorney Chuck McPhillips guided us through the traps and answered your questions.
