As a government contractor, you have the right to file a bid protest before the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (COFC). As compared to a GAO bid protest, you are not under such stringent time constraints. However, when filing a bid protest in the Court of Federal Claims, you may want to do quickly in order to take advantage of possible temporary restraining order (TRO) advantages. Having a government GAO bid protest lawyer on your team can help you to sort through the red tape and focus on the merits of your case.
The United States Court of Federal Claims has jurisdiction to hear bid protest cases under the Tucker Act, 28 U.S.C. Section 1491(b). The Tucker Act, as amended by the Administrative Dispute Resolution Act of 1996, Pub.L. No. 104-320 Section 12(a)-(b), waives sovereign immunity for claims against the United States and provides that the US Court of Federal Claims may hear actions by an interested party "objecting to a solicitation by a Federal agency for bids or proposals for a proposed contract or to a proposed award or the award of a contract or any alleged violation of statute or regulation in connection with a procurement or proposed procurement." A government contracts attorney at Watson & Associates, LLC can help you to prepare or defend your case. Our professional bring a vase amount of experience to the table.
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.
