About the Program

This presentation is important for project managers involved in federal contracts from either the government or contractor perspectives. It covers information available in post-award debriefings, deciding whether to protest the award of a contract, and the legal forums for doing so, as well as the practical pros and cons of each forum. It provides a mixture of legal and practical considerations regarding this critical issue in federal procurement and how it can impact project issues.
