In today’s increasingly competitive federal market, bid protests are an inevitable feature of many procurements. Contractors may receive an award notice, only to be told several days later that the contract is on hold, all because of a bid protest filed by a disgruntled competitor. If you have ever found yourself in this position, you may know how hard it can be to find answers, and how quickly you can miss an important deadline. In this webinar, Maria Panichelli teams up with friends at USI to provide you with the roadmap and resources necessary to defend against the protest, keep the contract you earned, and keep your costs down. Attendees will learn about intervention, common bid protest defenses and strategies, as well as practical tips about how to mitigate risk and costs. We’ll discuss best practices for protest litigation, and USI provides information about how contractors might plan ahead and take advantage of certain products to minimize out-of-pocket litigation costs.
