Jennifer Horn and Maria Panichelli presented a webinar on June 24, 2015 at 2:00 pm. This was presented to WIPP Give Me 5: Special Unit – Asserting and Defending Protests.
The Construction Industry offers tremendous opportunities and challenges for any business owner; but when your customer is the federal government, there is an extra layer of requirements that can either make or break your business. This Give Me 5 Special Unit on Construction helps you to organize your business, understand the rules/regulations, and assists you in becoming a highly successful Construction vendor for the Federal Government.
This webinar dealt with one of the most important topics in government contracting: how to handle a protest. It covered both angles of a protest, detailing both how to assert a protest as well as how to defend against (and avoid) protests asserted by disgruntled competitors. Maria and Jennifer explained the who, what, where, how and why of protests – and answer the most important question relating to protests: when do I have to file? Common bases for pre- and post-award protests are discussed, as are size/status protests and investigations.
