Event Details

To Protest or Not to Protest?  

 That’s the question a bidder must ask before filing a bid protest



  • Who is the audience for this seminar?
    Top business development execs, including estimators, for bidders competing for government construction contracts.


  • Why would someone take this seminar?
    To make money by getting the awards they deserve, rather than missing out on contracts due to government officials acting improperly.  Successful contractors protect their legal interests in fair treatment in competing for Gov’t contracts.


  • What will they learn?
    Factors to consider — before bid opening – in deciding whether to protest faulty specs (unduly restrictive or vague specs):

    • How to evaluate whether the officials selected the correct awardee;
    • How to defend the correctness of the Govt selection of YOU, and prevent a successful protest against Gov’t that selected you for award
  • Will the seminar be helpful to a contractor who is contemplating a protest?
    Is it smart to consult with a procurement law specialist before deciding to protest or not?

The procedures can be confusing;

  • Risks to business relationships should be evaluated;
  • Cost/time… is the likelihood of success worth the cost, misallocations of resources, to pursue a protest.


Scott A. Livingston, a founding partner of the law firm of Rifkin Weiner Livingston LLC, represents contractors who compete for state construction contracts.  He specializes in Maryland procurement law, handling bid protests and claims related to public works contracts.
