Description

This one-day, elective course provides a broad understanding of protests in government contracting. As requests for products and services become more complex, the inevitability of protests grows. Due to time and resource constraints, many agencies do not have a plan to avoid bid or award protests. This course provides proven, well-documented methods for agencies to prevent protests and to defend against them. Additionally, it will discuss the Bid Protest Process and why most contractors protest.
