This week, the Bid Protest Weekly article analyzes a recent bid protest decision involving a question of how an agency is to treat an offeror’s negative past performance not included in the proposal. GAO’s decision includes a suggestion as to how offeror’s are to address negative past performance in its offer, and demonstrates that negative past performance can certainly come back to haunt you.
