Gov't contracts can be lucrative. They can also be VERY restrictive. They can specify what equipment you use, what you pay your employees (and they better be legal), Taxes and Financial can be reviewed (and sometimes made public), and much more. Amongst other obstacles that can be overcome, they take some time to come to fruition. We have bid several projects over the years. Approach Gov't work with caution. If you are not well versed, you can get into some seriously unrewarding work. Sit in on a couple of bid awards and review open bids. See what goes on before you dive in. Check out Christy Weber Landscape in Chicago. They have built a very solid foundation in municipal work.
