It is not uncommon for a solicitation to require offerors to meet a certain certification requirement to be eligible for award. Oftentimes, there will be a question as to when that certification requirement must actually be met. A protest addressing this issue is the subject of this week’s Bid Protest Weekly article.
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.
