Bid Protests

Our government contract attorneys are seasoned professionals in prosecuting and defending bid protests and legal disputes before the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, and other federal contract tribunals.

  • Whether representing a successful awardee or disappointed offeror, we help clients navigate the bid protest process to successfully defend their own contract awards or to vindicate their rights to full and fair competition as a protester.
  • Centre has represented clients in countless bid protests that yielded successful results without a written decision, including matters in which the procuring agency voluntarily adopted early corrective action or the protest resulted in early outcome prediction.
