Bid Protests

Bid Protests

 

The bid protest process is one of the most important tools available to government contractors. Federal contractors who believe the government improperly awarded a contract to a competitor may file a bid protest. Filing a bid protest once carried a stigma, but today bid protests are an integral part of the government contract landscape. A bid protest should only be filed when it makes good legal and business sense. The key is only protesting in situations that will not adversely impact a contractor’s ability to win contracts from that agency in the future.
