Proofing Your Proposal
Jay G. Herther, CPP APMP Fellow
Director of Business
GAO reports indicate
that the number of protests has doubled in the past 5-years and growing. Analysis of some recent protests and trends
reveal a major change in the DoD/Federal acquisition/proposal industry. So, why do contractors protest? What are the odds of success? What were the reasons that protests were
upheld? What are the rules? Do protests mean that only the lowest
evaluated Price can win and that "Best Value" is dead? What behavior is this going to drive our
Federal customers and fellow bidders?
What can you do in your Capture and proposal to attempt to make your
proposal: "Protest Proof"?
This briefing researches this hot topic and the answers to these
questions may increase your Pwin (Probability of Win): even if there is not a
protest. The audience will be polled
to share their Protest war stories so we can learn more as an Industry.
