$189.00 Navigating the Protest and Claims Processes as a Small Business (OnDemand Recording available until 12.31.2021)

As revenues shrink in many markets, businesses are flooding the government marketplace. This raises the number of bids and, consequently, the number of contract denials. 

To win (and keep) awards in this intensely competitive environment, it’s critical to understand both sides of the bid protest process.  That means knowing how to file bid protests that could put you back in the running for a contract.  It also means knowing how to defend yourself if a competitor protests your award or the terms and conditions you’ve proposed.

Here’s how.

This 90-minute webinar focuses exclusively on small businesses and their counsel. Step by step, federal contracting expert Edward Delisle shows you how to use bid protests to win more awards.  You’ll discover what factors determine whether you should challenge a contract denial. You’ll learn how each part of the process works, plus practices that can improve your success in filing—and defending against—bid protests.

Turn debriefings and bid protests into powerful contracting tools.  This expert guidance helps eliminate the confusion and mistakes that derail so many small businesses. From identifying decisions, terms and conditions to protest, to choosing whether to use REAs or claims, you’ll learn how to navigate every aspect of the bid protest process. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
