Attendees will learn the basics of government contract bid protests from a former senior contracting officer: general process and requirements, how a protest can “freeze” the award of a new contract to you or your competitor, protest strategy, recent trends and statistics for winning protests, and answers to frequently asked questions about bid protests. Attendees will also learn how to get the most out of “debriefings,” which are meetings with the government about why you lost the contract and how you can provide a better proposal in the future.
