No, you cannot file a lien against Federal Property (or any government property/project for that matter).

However, with Federal projects, the "Miller Act" does provide protection for subcontractors (see this article for a more detailed discussion: http://www.primerus.com/business-law-articles/the-contractors-friend-the-federal-miller-act-1252011.htm).
