With sequestration budget cuts hanging over procuring agencies like a guillotine blade, it was only a matter of time before we saw a protest directly related to sequestration. The focus of this week’s Bid Protest Weekly article is the first GAO case to address a solicitation canceled due to the sequestration that went into effect earlier this year.
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.
