Business Thru Government recognizes that even the government can make mistakes. In some situations bidders will be disqualified for submitting a non-responsive bid or be determined a non-responsible bidder. In other situations the government may award a contract to a bidder that had an unfair advantage, was not the lowest bidder, or did not meet the specifications outlined in the RFP/RFQ.
Business Thru Government has assisted clients with explaining the bid protest process and the steps needed to properly address the Contracting Officer. The use of bid protests are a relatively new phenomena as the government did not allow protests of federal contracts for over 100 years from the time they began purchasing goods and services from the private sector.
Essentially a bid protest is a written objection drafted by or on behalf of the bidder that addresses the grounds for the protest and is made against the agency responsible for the solicitation. The complexity surrounding the process for securing a government contract does not end with the bid protest. The filing of the protest, procedure, time limitations, and other aspects can be just as daunting as any other step in the government contracting process. The complexity at the state and local levels often rival the federal procurement process and present a variety of intricacies, regulations, procedures that are unique to the particular contracting agency.
