Trump's Contracting By Twitter Likely To Backfire

January 23, 2017, Law360

Alan Pemberton is quoted in a Law360 article regarding President Trump’s use of Twitter to involve himself in the federal contracting process. According to Pemberton, "I'm not aware of a president doing quite what President Trump has done." He adds, "It's important to remember that the president certainly has considerable power in the bully pulpit, but contractual actions do have to be translated into writing and things have to happen in accordance with the complex and slow-moving ... federal contracting process and accordance with all the laws that apply to the contracting process." Pemberton says, "Ultimately, the i's have to be dotted and the t's have to be crossed by a contracting officer."
