Bid Protests, Appropriations Law, & Other Legal Work
Search Decisions & Docket
Federal agencies are required to award government contracts in accordance with numerous acquisition laws and regulations. If a party interested in a government contract believes that an agency has violated procurement law or regulation in a solicitation for goods or services, or in the award of a contract, it may file a bid protest with our office. GAO provides an inexpensive and expeditious forum for the resolution of bid protests.
Use this keyword search to access any of our published decisions. Published decisions on recently decided protests may not yet be publicly available (Read more here.) Additionally, GAO does not publish most decisions dismissing a protest, including instances where an agency takes some form of corrective action. A protester may also choose to withdraw their protest prior to a decision being reached.
