What Foreign Companies Need to Know About Doing Business With the U.S. Government

Tenley Carp, AGG Government Contracts practice leader, authored an article for Global Atlanta discussing key considerations for foreign companies doing business with the U.S. government.

Tenley underscored the importance of understanding the legal and regulatory landscapes of U.S. government contracts for foreign companies to effectively propose their goods and services. She also highlighted the U.S. government’s commitment to hire outside contractors for projects including infrastructure and clean energy.

It is vital foreign companies understand U.S. regulations, such as the Buy American Act and the Trade Agreements Act, and how to navigate the complexity of the process.

Tenley shared some best practices for foreign companies interested in bidding on U.S. government contracts, including that companies should become familiar with the Federal Acquisition Regulations, pursue subcontracting opportunities, and more.

“Working with the U.S. government on any level – whether as a prime contractor or a subcontractor, whether in the U.S. or another country, and whether your company is selling products or services – can always open doors to additional and/or larger contracts,” said Tenley.
