As a government contractor, you have the right to file a bid protest before the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (COFC).

The Court of Federal Claims has many important advantages over bid protests filed with GAO. First the Court of Federal Claims considers violations of law or regulations and arbitrary and capricious agency action; the GAO can only consider violations of law or regulations. Second, the GAO process permits the agency to “fix” its problems through the Agency Report prepared after the bid protest is filed, effectively moving the goal posts during the protest itself by permitting it to add facts to the case. The Court of Federal Claims locks the agency into its pre-filing position for a decision on the merits. Finally, federal judges can simply be more independent than GAO hearing examiners, who are federal lawyers.
