Public Contracting Institute - Post-Award Protests: Making an Informed Protest Decision

This four-part series is intended to provide a comprehensive understanding of the options and considerations that go into challenging (or defending) the award of a government contract, i.e. a bid protest. The instructor, Greenberg Traurig shareholder, Jeff Chiow, has been among the most active bid protest attorneys at GAO and the Court of Federal Claims over the last decade. Shareholder Jennifer S. Zucker, will co-present this session. This is not a review of cases, but rather a distillation of the legal, procedural, and practical factors that inform the litigation of bid protests. The course will cover pre-award protests, post-award protests, corrective action and an assortment of special protest topics, including challenges to the award of Other Transaction Agreements, research and development contracts and state and local bid protests. Decision-makers and practitioners will gain insights to take better-informed actions in bid protests, whether they are filing or defending them. They’ll understand bid protests from all angles. Part 2 will discuss Post-Award Protests: Making an Informed Protest Decision.
