GAO Bid Protests Go Electronic On May 1, 2018 (And With A Fee)
The U.S. Government Accountability Office (“GAO”) announced that, beginning May 1, 2018, bid protests with the GAO must be submitted electronically through its new electronic bid protest docketing system. Along with this new method of filing, the GAO now will require the payment of a $350 filing fee. Prior to the implementation of this new filing system, there had been no filing fee.
The GAO has been piloting the new system since this past February. In addition to implementing this new system, GAO is updating its Bid Protest Regulations, which also will go into effect on May 1, 2018.
If you have a question regarding the GAO’s or the U.S. Court of Claims’ bid protest process or other questions regarding bid protests of federal contract awards, please contact Clark Hill’s public procurement practice team: Bret Wacker at (202) 772-0906 or firstname.lastname@example.org@ClarkHill.com.
