Bid Protest as a
Business Strategy

The Details
With higher infrastructure spending anticipated in fiscal year 2022, government contractors should expect protest activity levels to remain steady, if not increase. As a result, organizations should think through protests, not as a forgone conclusion of losing a competition or as a lost cause, but as a deeper strategic choice that weighs the cost to the organization, the relationship with the customer, the investment in the proposal, and the potential upside of award as important elements of the decision on whether or not to protest.

Designed for govcon executives, contracts shops, general counsels, bid and proposal professionals, and finance departments, this webinar will cover:
  • Overview of the bid protest process
  • Determine stakeholders in a protest
  • Costs, benefits and long-term implications of protest actions
  • The value to protesting
  • Protest risk factors
