In today’s increasingly competitive federal market, protests – including bid, and size/status – are an inevitable feature of many procurements.  Succeeding in the federal marketplace requires an understanding of these processes, and how to navigate them.  In this series, McCarter & English Government Contracts Partners Maria Panichelli and Franklin Turner will provide attendees with an overview on the different types of protests that a government contractor can file, or have filed against it.  In this series, contractors will learn the differences between bid, size, and status protests, and how to use each to challenge contract awards that were improperly made to competitors.  Attendees will also learn how to defend against unmeritorious protests filed against their own contract awards.
