Why Procurement Lobbyists Are Different
Procurement lobbying is different from other types of lobbying in a variety of ways. The rules and regulations are similar, but the process can be a bit more complicated.
For example, Pennsylvania is one of 26 states that has enacted specific regulations for procurement and vendor lobbyists. The procurement specialists at Pugliese Associates know and follow the appropriate guidelines and can advise clients of laws about pay-to-play, ethics and procedural transparency. Our lobbyists also manage, educate and help clients understand the ever-changing regulatory scene.
