In today’s increasingly competitive federal market, bid protests are an inevitable feature of many procurements. Contractors may receive an award notice, only to be told several days later that the contract is on hold, all because of a bid protest filed by a disgruntled competitor. If you have ever found yourself in this position, you may know how hard it can be to find answers and how quickly you can miss an important deadline in the meantime.  

In this webinar, Obermayer government contracting attorney Maria Panichelli will provide you with the roadmap and resources necessary to defend against a protest, keep the contract you earned, and keep your costs down. Attendees will learn about intervention, common bid protest defenses and strategies, as well as practical tips for mitigating risk and costs. Keep the contracts you deserve!
