Government Contract Bid Protest Lawyers & Information About Protesting a Bid
Deciding whether to protest an unsuccessful bid, or a solicitation before award, is a difficult choice, and one made under intense time pressure. On the one hand, the value of the prospective award is often great, and a contractor considering a bid protest often has at least a suspicion that the award was either unreasonable, or not in compliance with the F.A.R. On the other hand, a bid protest can be an exercise in futility, gaining nothing more than a delay of the inevitable rejection of the contractor’s proposal. Our bid protest lawyers are here to help you determine the right course of action.
In determining whether a protest is a strategically beneficial move, the contract must immediately weigh the relative strengths of its potential claims versus their weakness, and must very quickly determine which protest claims are worth pursuing. The contractor must simultaneously consider the strategy to be pursued at debriefing, and for small and mid-size contractors, that same person or group must continue their day-to-day activities and pursue the next opportunity.
Randolph Law helps government contractors decide whether to pursue a protest, and if so, in what manner and on what grounds. We offer pre-protest counsel and an evaluation of the merits of a bid protest. Should the contractor decide to file a bid protest, we provide legal representation throughout the process.
On the other side of the business equation, the successful offeror with a contract subject to protest must decide whether it is valuable to intervene in the protest or rely on the government client’s factual and legal evaluation of the issues and defense of the procurement.
Our team has represented protestors and intervenors in many protests at the GAO, at the Agency, and at the Court of Federal Claims. We pride ourselves on providing high value advice and high value representation that allows our contractor clients to defend their rights as government bidders, while at the same time relying on us to free them up to do what they do best – serve their government clients.
