Subject matter experts Katie Burrows and Eric Valle with PilieroMazza PLLC, will present briefings on what happens after your proposal is submitted, including what information you are entitled to in a debriefing and an overview of the protest process. Questions often asked are: What should we do after receipt of an unsuccessful offeror notice? Do we have a right to a debrief? Should we file a protest right away? If the agency provides a debriefing, should we push for a debriefing in person, over the phone, or in writing? What can the agency tell us during the debriefing? We filed a protest, now what? Having a basic understanding of when a debriefing is required, what an offeror must do to receive one, and what the agency can and must tell the offeror will help you make the most of a debriefing. This can give you insight into the agency’s evaluation of your proposal and whether a protest would be worth your time and money. This can also gives you tips for future proposals. Topics to be discussed include:
- When a debriefing is required in both pre-award and post-award situations;
- What information is revealed during the debriefing and how to use it;
- New requirements for debriefings for Department of Defense procurements;
- How to maximize the debriefing to get the information you can use in a protest and for improving future proposals; and
