The shutdown of the Federal government is no doubt affecting contractors in a variety of ways. Unfortunately, a disruption to the bid protest process must be added to that list. This week’s Bid Protest Weekly article addresses how the shutdown will affect GAO bid protests.
The Bid Protest Weekly is an online journal created and maintained by our Government Contracts Practice Group. This and similar articles analyzing recent bid protest decisions are posted each week on the Bid Protest Weekly website: www.bidprotestweekly.com. The Bid Protest Weekly website also offers a continuously expanding archive of decision digests dating back to 2008 that summarize and categorize GAO bid protest decisions.
