Navigating the New

Protest Provisions



This session is focused on the new protest provisions found in the Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Act. The new provisions consolidate old sections into a more user friendly organization and allow for waiving of the protest process under certain circumstances. The panel will help us understand just how “friendly” the new version is and why the changes are an improvement from the past process. We will also discuss some case studies regarding the use of the protest provisions. The session will end with a discussion about how these provisions can be changed to make the process even more practical and understandable.
