I am new to this topic. Therefore I don't know what are the best tags for my question.
If I ask in the wrong stack exchange site please let me know. I will move it immediately.
I am a senior software engineer. The government project requires the team lead profile with computer science and engineering field as a background and have proven projects. I am the one in the company who can charge in that condition. The rest of them are not.
I am leaving the company within this month. But company claims I have to join the bidding by signing the document. Sign to show my name as a teammate in the project.
It is 50/50 chances to not be investigated since the project is not related to defense technology. It is about inventory managements.
1. If this situation happen again, should I deny to sign my name in the bidding?
2. Will I damage my name? If government start investigate the team members. Obviously they will not found me in it.
3. Is it common in the west to use short-life member to shore the contract with the government?
