If the government chooses another bidder, federal contractors can protest the award.  In some cases, they can even file a claim against the government. So why don’t more contractors take advantage of their rights? Why do so many companies simply walk away from major revenues?

Because strict process and fine-line distinctions can make it hard to use protests and claims.

Now, a new webinar explains how to use these remedies strategically—and legally for your best shot at turning denials into new contracts.
