In today’s hyper-competitive market, bid protests are a common feature of many procurements. Accordingly, understanding the processes and procedures that govern bid protests can mean the difference between getting a contract, or losing out to a competitor. In this webinar, Maria Panichelli provides a primer on asserting bid protests, a tool used to challenge improper contract awards made to your competitors. Registrants will learn about the procurement timeline, when to be on the lookout for notices or events that might trigger their protest deadlines, and how to ensure they comply with these deadlines. Strategies for debriefings will be discussed, as will some common bases for both pre- and post-award protests. The presenter will explain who has “standing” to file a bid protest, what needs to go into a bid protest, where a bid protest can be filed, and what deadlines apply to filing a bid protest.
