Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 15, 2013
Most government contractors know that the U.S. Government Accountability Office (“GAO”) sustains less than 20 percent of bid protests. If most protests are unsuccessful, why should you consider investing the time and considerable expense of filing a GAO protest, or intervening in a pending protest?
One reason that’s often overlooked is the protest that results in agency “corrective action.” Although an agency’s decision to take corrective action is not published anywhere, it occurs more often than GAO’s sustaining of a protest. This 90-minute webinar will discuss this and other strategies of bid protests, both for the protesting company and for the “intervener” company whose contract award is being protested. We’ll examine the pros and cons of filing a bid protest; deciding when to intervene; the internal discussions that take place between the contracting officer and agency counsel; what forms corrective action can take; and much more.
This 90-minute webinar entitled “The Pros and Cons of Bid Protests: ‘Corrective Action’ and Other Strategies for Success” is scheduled for Tuesday, March 5th, at 1 PM Eastern. To register, follow this link:
