This guide provides an overview of government contract protests. It will inform you of the steps necessary for a protest and what to expect from the process. A government contracts lawyer is often necessary to adequately pursue a protest. Protests filed with the Court of Federal Claims require a company to be represented by a lawyer. In addition, most protests will be subject to a protective order that will limit access to competitively sensitive procurement information (e.g. the proposal submitted by your competitor and the agency’s evaluation information) to lawyers.
