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.
IMPORTANT: You must register at least one hour prior to a webinar, to ensure you receive the registration link from GoToWebinar in time. If you register after this threshold, you may receive the link in time, however there is no guarantee. Regardless, you will receive an email with a link to watch a recording of the presentation, a few hours after the webinar happens.
