Groups such as the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), [60] Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), [61] Construction Industry Roundtable (CIRT), the National Federation of Independent Affairs (NFIB), the National Black Chamber of Commerce(U.S. Chamber of Commerce)[62] have actively opposed the use of PLA, particularly for government projects. These groups have questioned the application of such agreements through litigation, lobbying and public relations campaigns. [61] Opponents of the PLA supported Bush`s executive order, which prohibits government-mandated LBAs, and argued that between 2001 and 2008, when the executive order was in effect, no federal project had experienced significant work problems, delays or cost overruns due to the absence of ALP.

A number of politicians do not agree with the use of agreements for publicly funded construction projects and have introduced bills or executive orders prohibiting the use of agreements for government projects or preventing the use of public funds for projects with PTAs.
