When a business responds to a public sector Request for Proposal or Expression of Interest (both of which we will refer to as an RFP for these purposes) or seeks government financing, it is typically providing a significant amount of business information, some or even much of it highly confidential, to the public body. Most are rightly focused on the benefits of a successful proposal, but few consider the risk that their confidential information will end up in the hands of a direct competitor. And that is a very real – and potentially severe – risk of doing business with the public sector.
Read McInnes Cooper lawyers David Fraser and Trent Skanes’ article, “Doing Business With the Public Sector – Key Confidentiality Risks & Three Risk Management Strategies” as they explain the key confidentiality risks of doing business with the public sector and offer three strategies to help manage those risks as published at page 9 in Construction Law Letter (PDF).
