Bid Protest Series Part 3: COFC Protests and Special Protest Situations
Holland & Knight Webinar
Holland & Knight's Government Contracts Group invites you to join us for our annual Bid Protest Series. We will present four one-hour webinars discussing bid protests and how to engage strategically and tactically in the process.
The federal government's fiscal year ends on September 30. Historically, federal agencies award hosts of contracts before that date to prevent the funding for those contracts from lapsing. For this reason, now is a good time for government contractors to "brush up" on bid protests and how to protect their interests in the procurement process.
In Part 3 of our Bid Protest Series, Robert Tompkins and Eric Crusius will focus on a bid protest forum that more and more protesters are utilizing – the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (COFC). We also will cover protest opportunities relating to non-procurement awards, such as Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) awards and awards of federal grants.
During this one-hour webinar, we will address:
- the procedure for initiating a bid protest at COFC, either following a GAO protest or as an initial protest
- the procedure for obtaining a preliminary injunction to stay contract performance while the protest is pending
- access to information through the administrative record and supplementing the administrative record when appropriate
- challenging agency corrective action or attempt to override the automatic stay in a GAO protest
- special protest situations, including protests related to OTA awards and federal grants

- Part 2: Protest Intervention – Defending Your Award on September 19
