Program Description

Drawing from practical experience, the presenters will not only give an overview of the bid protest process, but also discuss strategies for making the process work better for you. To do so, we will examine “The Good” (strategies for successful protests when you do not win a procurement), “The Bad” (what happens when I win and someone protests), and “The Ugly” (learning from others’ mistakes by examining recent bid protest decisions).

In this seminar, attendees will learn about:

  • What is this mysterious bid protest process all about?
  • Signs you should or should not protest
  • Strategies for filing an effective protest
  • What to do when your award gets protested
  • Lessons learned and the practical implications
