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- port’s 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 airport’s 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 airport’s commercial contracting activities.

Airport attorneys spend considerable time drafting and negotiating airport contracts that involve specialized legal and business issues. Some are general commercial issues, while others are unique to airports. As governmental entities, airports are subject to a variety of governmental law principles that can affect their contracts for commercial services.

The TRB Airport Cooperative Research Program's ACRP Legal Research Digest 41: Legal Issues Relating to Airport Commercial Contracts complements other ACRP publications that deal with other legal aspects of airport operations and provides a general overview of the types of agreements airports use and includes other government law principles that also can affect government contracts for commercial services.
