30 ACRP LRD 41 best served by identifying and resolving such issues and par- ticularly those that affect price, performance or schedule prior to entering into the contract. V. CONCLUSION Developing, negotiating, and administering airport com- mercial contracts involves several disciplines, including gen- eral commercial contract issues, federal contract compliance requirements, and other state and local issues related to an air- portâs status as a government or quasi-government entity. This digest identifies and discusses many of the legal and contract issues that are generated by a government entity operating in the commercial space. While many of these concepts and the re- lated sample language can be incorporated into an airportâs rou- tine contracting practices, these issues need to be carefully ana- lyzed and addressed when airports embark on large, complex or novel projects or programs in the commercial marketplace. This digest, however, can serve as a starting point for identify- ing those issues that must be considered and analyzed. Careful consideration of these issues can also improve all of an airportâs commercial contracting activities.
