Bid Protests 101
A GAO bid protest is a powerful tool for government contractors, but many small businesses often don't understand how to take advantage of the process This session will explore the nuts and bolts of GAO bid protests, and provide a pragmatic best practices approach for incorporating them into your procurement playbook. Attendees will learn the basics of GAO bid protests, including the types of protests, timeliness issues, and debriefings, spotting viable bid protest grounds, and intervening (when you're the awardee). In the competitive federal marketplace, many contractors will use the bid protest process for pre-and post-award issues to enhance their chance of winning a contract. By developing a fundamental understanding of bid protests, decision-makers will be in a better position to spot viable bid protest issues and perhaps avoid undue costs or headaches.
