PROTESTS AND SIZE/ELIGIBILITY INVESTIGATIONS:

We explained the differences between the various types of protests (Bid Protests, Size Protests, and Status Protests) and Size/Eligibility Investigations and walked you through the who, what, when, where, why & how of filing a protest. We also touched upon the other side of protests, teaching you how to defend against, or even avoid, protests filed by competitors.
