Welcome to the weekly online journal focused entirely on GAO Bid Protests of Federal Government contract awards brought to you by the Government Contracts Practice Group at General Counsel, P.C.. This site will be updated at least once a week with analysis and summaries of the latest GAO Bid Protest decisions and information to help professionals and business owners make informed decisions on protesting a contract solicitation or award.

Search our archives past GAO protest decisions and come back often to keep up to date on the latest trends and legal decisions in Bid Protests. If you have questions about filing a Bid Protest or you were awarded a contract that has been protested, please contact the editor immediately as missing a filing deadline is the quickest way to lose your right to protest or defend your award.
