California's Coalition for Adequate School Housing (C.A.S.H.) 33rd Annual Conference. This round table discussion will cover the following:
When a bid protest has been filed, it’s all in how one handles the challenge. Some bid protests hold more merit than others, but as the responder, it’s imperative to not lose sight of the project itself and the fact that bid protest procedures exist for a very good reason: to ensure a competitive, open process. We will draw on case examples to illustrate what needs to be done in order to handle bid protests appropriately so issues are resolved in a swift yet responsible manner. We will also discuss how to manage the RFP process going forward to minimize the risk of successful bid protests.
