Obermayer is excited to continue its “GovCon Examiner Live” webinar series in 2021. Over the course of the next 12 months, our experienced government contracting attorney Maria Panichelli will bring her popular GovCon Examiner blog to life with legal updates and practical tips for your business.
Competition for federal government contracts today is fierce. As a result, bid protests are a common feature of many procurements. Understanding the processes and procedures that govern bid protests can mean the difference between getting a contract or losing out to a competitor. In this webinar, Obermayer’s experienced government contracting attorney Maria Panichelli will walk attendees through the basics of both asserting, and defending, bid protests. First, she will discuss using bid protests as an affirmative tool to go after the contracts you want. Registrants will learn about the procurement timeline, when to be on the lookout for notices or events that might trigger their protest deadlines, and how to ensure they comply with these deadlines. Strategies for debriefings will be discussed, as will some common bases for both pre- and post-award protests. The presenter will explain who has “standing” to file a bid protest, what needs to go into a bid protest, where a bid protest can be filed, and what deadlines apply to filing a bid protest. Then, Maria will move on to defending protests, learning about intervention and some top procedural defenses that can be used to defeat a protest brought by your competitors.
