This volume describes the dangerous practices that are commonly applied in the development and management of government contracts and provides advice that can help government officials keep from making the sort of errors that might compromise their ability to protect the public interest. It covers present-day scenarios that regularly lead public servants and government committees to manage contracts with tools that are less than optimal and to select contractors that may not be the best qualified, but always offers alternative approaches to supplant the imperfect methodologies. Quality contracts discovered while researching this text have been made into templates for the readers.
