BID PROTESTS & DEBRIEFINGS – WHAT EVERY GOVERNMENT CONTRACTOR NEEDS TO KNOW
February 25 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
As procurements grow larger and larger, bid protests have become more and more important. Whether you lose a contract you thought you should have won or you win the award but are now faced with having to defend against a protest, every Government Contractor needs to understand Debriefing and Bid Protest Rules and Deadlines. This is especially true because of DoD's recently implemented Enhanced Debriefing Rights, which give contractors the ability to obtain more information in a debriefing and have the potential to significantly change Bid Protest deadlines.
Join us on February 25th for this comprehensive presentation on Bid Protests and Debriefings. We will cover everything that occurs from receiving the initial Notice of Award, requesting and participating in a debriefing, through the entire life-cycle of a Bid Protest (focusing on GAO Bid Protests). Importantly, we will talk about the most common - and successful - grounds for Bid Protests, and explain how to Intervene and defend against a Bid Protest if you are the awardee. Finally, we will walk through the Bid Protest process so that you know exactly what to expect – from electronic filing through GAO’s EPDS system, through Intervention, Corrective Action, the Agency Report, Comments, GAO decisions, and attorney’s fee awards.
Government Contracts Attorneys Brad Reaves and Beth McMahon – experts in bid protest and procurement rules and regulations – will explain, in plain language, what you need to know about Bid Protests and Debriefings. There will also be an opportunity to pose questions to Brad and Beth on Bid Protests and Debriefings.
Please come and join us on February 25, 2020!
