That’s why we tailor everything we do – from logistics to on-site support. Our experts work closely with you to help identify areas that can lead to cost savings, while focusing on how to get goods to site faster and easier.

Conducting due diligence checks
Complete due diligence on your preferred supplier or provider before negotiating or awarding the contract. You can also do due diligence checks when shortlisting.
You complete due diligence by undertaking activities to independently verify that a supplier or provider:
is who they claim to be
has the financial ability to deliver, and
has the necessary capacity and capability to deliver over the life of the contract?
All due diligence actions should be documented.
Planning your due diligence
Decide which activities you want to complete and when you want to complete them.
Specify your decisions in your tender documents.
Ask suppliers to deliver any information required to complete the planned checks.
How to do due diligence
Check the supplier:
is who they claim to be by looking at their legal set-up
is financially sound by checking their financial history
can be trusted – check corruption indicators
has good past performance of appropriate health and safety and employment practices
has the capacity, capability and expertise to deliver, based on past performance
has the right systems and processes to be able to deliver
can deliver what you need for the price quoted – test the assumptions in their proposal
understands the contract deliverables and requirements and their obligations.
Other types of evidence you could ask for include:
accreditation or audit reports from your own or another government department
testimonials or references from current or recent customers
current service and contract performance reports
Companies Office and/or Charities Register checks
analysis of audited accounts
valid insurance certificate
police check or security clearance.
It’s best to verify your information from more than one source — through your own research, by asking the supplier for documentation and by seeking confirmation from referees or third parties. Referees should be the supplier's current or recent customers. Third parties could be the supplier's accountant or bank manager.
Previous experience with a supplier
You can use previous experience with the supplier as part of your evidence – but you must make sure you're being objective and not biased. For example, documented knowledge of poor performance is a valid reason to rule out a supplier, but personal dislike isn't.
A verification matrix can help to show if you have all the relevant information to satisfy the panel that the preferred supplier has the capacity and capability to deliver.
What to do if you uncover issues
If you uncover information that might influence the outcome of the evaluation process, provide this information to the evaluation panel so they can update scoring for the applicable supplier.
If the issues identified are serious, you must consider:
excluding the supplier under Rule 41 of the Government Rules of Sourcing, or
not awarding the contract to the supplier.
If you identify issues but you think they aren’t serious, consider:
what additional information you need to confirm whether or not the issues are serious
what you can do to avoid or mitigate any issues being realised and impacting your procurement.
Government Procurement, Mergers, Acquisitions, Due Diligence & Novations
Our Government Procurement Mergers, Acquisitions, Due Diligence & Novations Practice is an integral part of the acquisition due diligence process. We identify and evaluate due diligence issues, advise on the transaction’s impact on existing or future government contracts, assist in the preparation of the purchasing documents, and determine if a novation, or Foreign Ownership Control and Influence filing is required.
Whether you are the target or the acquirer, we can assist you in identifying those issues that could trigger a claim under the indemnification clause of the purchase agreement or have a significant adverse impact on the acquired company, such as:
Compliance with various government contracting laws and regulations, such as the Truth in Negotiations Act, Cost Accounting Standards, the Service Contract Act, the Procurement Integrity Act, anti-bribery laws, export controls laws and regulations, domestic sourcing requirements, and specialty metals restrictions
Facts or circumstances that would trigger a requirement to make a mandatory disclosure to the government
Facts or circumstances that would cause the target’s government contracts to be terminated for default or otherwise adversely impact the target’s ability to receive government contracts post-acquisition
Any past investigations or civil or criminal conduct that would potentially cause the acquired company to be suspended or debarred from federal government contracting
We are often retained by other law firms to perform due diligence when a business with significant government contracts is being acquired. We ask the right questions to help determine the target business’ stability and to aid in alleviating risk. We draft the government contract-related provisions of the purchase agreement to include applicable government contract-related representations and warranties.
We also can assist you post-acquisition in pursuing a novation or providing the government with other required notices. For example, when a client acquires a small business, we assist the client in assessing whether the target will continue to qualify as a small business post-acquisition and, if not, we assist the client in providing the government with notice of its change in small business size status. Additionally, we offer counsel on the transfer of security clearances and export control registrations and licenses to the new company post-acquisition.
