National Law Journal quotes James McCullough on BP's suspension from government contracting

Litigation partner James McCullough spoke to National Law Journal on federal regulators temporary suspension of BP from government contracts. "BP is a major supplier of petroleum products to military agencies, and DOD has the authority under the Federal Acquisition Regulation to waive a contractor's suspension if the Secretary of Defense determines that there is a 'compelling reason' to continue to award contracts to a suspended contractor," said Mr. McCullough. "DOD's regulations also expressly provide that such compelling reasons may include circumstances where the national defense requires continued business dealings with the suspended contractor."
