Government contractors can spend hundreds of hours doing research, building a team and crafting a proposal. So when they lose the bid to competitors, it is a great disappointment.

A key component of learning what went wrong is the debriefing agencies are supposed to give losing bidders so they can gain insights on why their bids failed.

But there are problems with the quality and consistency of agency debriefings. This drives many companies to file bid protests to force agencies to share more information.

In this Power Breakfast, we’ll discuss the findings of the latest WT Insider Report on debriefings and bid protests that reveal industry frustrations with the process and where they want it to improve. We’ll also hear from experts who can advise you how to get the most from your debriefings and help you decide when to file a bid protest.
