PROGRAM INFORMATION

‼️ This program has been submitted to HRCI and SHRM for review.

Program Details:

According to Rand Corporation bid protests have been a feature of the U.S. defense acquisition environment for decades. If an interested party believes that the DoD has made an error in issuing a solicitation for a bid, canceling a contract, or choosing a winning bid, it has the right to file a protest questioning the outcome. A company may file a protest with the contracting DoD agency, the U.S. Government Accountability Office, or the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. In recent years, the process has come under increased scrutiny. 

Bid protest activity for both DoD and non-DoD agencies roughly doubled between fiscal years 2008 and 2016 at the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (COFC). DoD agencies accounted for around 60 percent of this activity, with small businesses making up half of these cases. 

The National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2018 includes some significant changes affecting contractors, particularly with regard to challenges to requests for proposals and contract awards, otherwise known as “bid protests.”


Learning Objectives:

This panel discussion will cover the impact of this latest round of legislation, the overall impact of the bid protest environment to federal contractors workforce, and delve into strategies that HR teams can implement to address issues to their employees whether they are the incumbent contractor or the newly awarded contractor.
