Briefing Overview

Federal agencies are required to award government contracts in accordance with numerous acquisition laws and regulations. This briefing will explain the basics of a bid protest: who can file, when to file, and where to file; the pros/cons of each forum (agency, with the GAO, or in court); and considerations that should be made prior to filing. If a party interested in a government contract believes that an agency has violated procurement law or regulation in a solicitation for goods or services, or in the award of a contract, it may file a bid protest.

Recommended attendees for this briefing include senior vendor leadership, business development, proposal writers, contract managers, contract officers.
