As the Federal government’s fiscal year draws to a close on September 30th, Federal agencies will be spending significant portions of their annually appropriated funds to enter into new contracts and orders, and to exercise options under existing ones. With this flurry of procurement activity comes an inevitable wave of bid protests, as contractors seek to challenge lost opportunities or to defend their hard-won awards. The bid protest process may involve multiple forums and any number of complex issues. Successful handling of this process requires knowledge of the process, its benefits and risks, and sound decision-making, often under tight deadlines. Will your organization be ready?
Join Susan Warshaw Ebner, Esq. and Sean D. Lee, Esq. of FortneyScott on Wednesday, September 26 at 12:00pm ET for a timely discussion about the fundamentals of bid protests, including:
- When can you request a “required debriefing?” Are you eligible to receive an “enhanced debriefing”?
- Who can protest?
- What kinds of issues can be protested?
- What are the different forums for bringing a protest?
- Will contract performance be stayed during the protest?
- Important timing concerns
- Special types of protests, such as Small Business size protests
This webinar will provide government contractors, including their in-house counsel, executives, program managers, business developers, and contract management professionals, tools for navigating the bid protest process.
