In an era of ever-increasing competition for government contracts, bid protests are a common part of the procurement process. Indeed, 2,639 protests were filed at the Government Accountability Office (“GAO”) in 2015 – the most in any year over the past five years. Despite the frequency of bid protests, many contractors do not understand the process or the arguments that can be raised. This information is essential when making the strategic decision of whether to protest after receiving a debriefing, a disappointed offeror letter, or a confusing solicitation. And, a firm grasp of bid protests is also useful for a contractor whose award is protested at the GAO or Court of Federal Claims.

Jon Williams and Michelle Litteken, attorneys in our government contracts group, recently discussed:

- Making the decision to protest and what you can expect - When, where, and why to file - Common pre- and post-award protest arguments
- Defending your award against a protest
- Overview of the protest process
- The type of relief a protest may provide
