Management Concepts Inc., the nation’s premier provider of professional development, performance improvement, and talent management solutions for the public sector, today announced the publication of Key Case Law Rules for Government Contract Formation, written by Patrick Butler, LTC.

The guidance contained in the almost 2,000 pages of the Federal Acquisition Regulation and various agency supplements are just a part of the resources government acquisition professionals need to do their jobs effectively – but accessing and understanding case law is equally important to a thorough understanding of government contracting.

Legal decisions explain the Government Accountability Office’s and the courts’ views on how procurement statutes and regulations apply in a wide range of situations. Case law also gives potential bid protesters and agencies a way to gauge the likely outcome of a protest.

Until now, it has been difficult to find and understand the legal decisions that could be relevant to a particular situation. Key Case Law Rules for Government Contract Formation changes that by organizing and explaining the most important protest grounds in a readily accessible and comprehensible way.

With an emphasis on more recent cases, the book is organized around the key protest grounds, such as pricing issues, allegations that the government wrongfully prevented competition, or improper sealed-bidding procedures.

Bridging the gap of understanding between the legal and the contracting communities, Key Case Law Rules for Government Contract Formation is a much-needed addition to the essential resources for acquisition professionals.

The book is available now through your local bookstore or directly from Management Concepts Press at http://www.ManagementConceptsPress.com. Please contact Myra Strauss at mstrauss@managementconcepts.com for a review copy.
