A Government Contractor's Survival Kit: Understanding Three Challenging Aspects of Procurement

Making the Most of Your Debriefing

The role of a debriefing in the Government contracts process is often misunderstood. This Thompson Coburn webinar will examine the entire debriefing process, explain why agencies do what they do, and provide an understanding of how debriefings relate to bid protests. Among the learning objectives, attendees should better understand the Government’s obligations to provide a debriefing, the two basic types of debriefing available, what you are entitled to learn, how to prepare for a debriefing, and what to do with what is learned.

Past Performance Primer

In selecting winning vendors, federal, state and local governments have typically looked at past contract performance information as part of their overall evaluation processes. Vendors that have a history of performing well have always enjoyed a better chance of winning than those that do not. Since the late 1990s the federal government began placing even more emphasis on past performance. This webinar will review past performance data gathering and suggest ways for you to manage information collected. We will also provide instruction on challenging negative performance reviews before the boards and the Court of Federal Claims.

Government Contracts – Government Agency Corrective Actions and How to Deal With Them

Government agencies often take corrective action in response to bid protests rather than defend their contract award decision. This webinar will examine why agencies make corrective action decisions, what corrective actions generally entail, and how they impact the parties involved. We will also discuss whether and how the affected parties might object to a corrective action once it has been announced or implemented.
