Marlena Ewald and Emily A. Spence, members of Fluet’s Government Contracts team intervened on behalf of a government contractor client who had been awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with the Department of Homeland Security. Fluet was able to effectively advocate for the awardee in the bid protest process. While not all information can be shared with the awardee, intervening may help mitigate the risk of losing an award or having the awardee’s proprietary information inadvertently disclosed during the bid protest process.
As a result of the Government’s fiscal year recently ending, the number of bid protests during this month will likely increase. If you need assistance assessing whether to protest an award pre-solicitation or post-award, or whether to intervene in a protest, our Government Contracts team can assist.
