Contracting agencies often decide to take corrective action in response to a bid protest. The scope of this corrective action can result in additional protest litigation.

This webinar will focus on corrective action in the protest forums. We will explore the frequency with which agencies take corrective action and the types of corrective action agencies utilize to remedy procurement concerns. We will also cover the various objections that protesters raise regarding corrective action, as well as how successful protesters are in bringing these challenges. The discussion will include:
  • A comparison between the Court of Federal Claims and the Government Accountability Office regarding how the forums review objections to agency corrective action;
  • An overview of selected, relevant decisions resolving corrective action challenges; and
  • An assessment of trends regarding corrective action at the protest forums.
After completing this webinar, you will:
  • Understand the difference between the Court of Federal Claims and the Government Accountability Office in regard to how each review objections to agency corrective action;
  • Be aware of trends regarding corrective action at the protest forums
This is a group internet based live webinar that is eligible for both CLE and CPE credit. NOTE: CPE/CLE credit for attendees is subject to participation and approval by the governing boards.
