Bidding and Procurement

Whether your publicly funded project involves the construction or renovation of a building, road or bridge or other capital improvement, Barnes & Thornburg attorneys have the experience and legal skills to help navigate the complex Indiana public works or public procurement laws that may apply.

Barnes & Thornburg has advised many government and private sector clients in the Indiana laws related to the use of the design-bid-build (bid-spec) process, the design-build process, the guaranteed savings contract (performance contracting) process and the public equipment procurement processes. In addition, we are the only Indiana law firm that has served as both national and local counsel in a public-private partnership transaction. With this level of experience, we are equipped to help our clients work through the legal issues that can arise.

Many of the our attorneys have worked in state and local government in Indiana, such as for the State Board of Accounts and the City of Indianapolis, and we bring a level of creativity and practicality to the numerous issues that arise in the areas of public bidding and procurement.

We advise clients on complex public bidding and procurement regulations, an area of municipal law that is becoming more complicated, and our attorneys are frequent speakers and authors on the topic. We have prepared a wealth of materials and information that we have provided to clients in small group and large group instruction settings that eliminates the legal jargon.
