Pre-Award Protests: Challenging the “Ground Rules” of a Procurement
December 19, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
Many of the most consequential bid protest cases GAO and the Courts consider are pre-award challenges to the ground rules of the procurement. Examples include:
- SpaceX case presenting pre-award challenges to a planned OTA for commercial space services;
- Palantir case that required the Army to switch from custom-built to commercial software for its intelligence-sharing platform, DCGS-A; and the
- Agusta Westland case challenging the Army’s sole-source procurement of UH-72 training helicopters.
This webinar will discuss those. And it will focus on the difficult but critical choice contractors must make – challenge allegedly faulty ground rules before award, or forfeit the right to complain after under GAO’s rules and the Court’s Blue & Gold rule.
