Overview of GAO's Handling of Bid Protests

The GAOs (Government Accountability Office) “Watchdog Report” features interviews with GAO officials on significant issues and newly published reports. It is an audio report that is recorded, hosted, and produced by GAO staff (using your tax dollars). These reports are informative, often interesting, and sometimes pertinent to the Government contracting community. This week’s report is an overview of GAO’s handling of bid protests.

Bid protests are arguments brought by a protester that the Government somehow violated a federal procurement law or some regulation in the selection of a particular contractor. The number of bid protests has increase significantly in recent years for a variety of reasons that the GAO discusses in its Audio Watchdog Report.
