Bid Protests and Public Procurement

Bid Protests

Public procurement and bid protests in South Florida are governed by the Florida Statutes, local regulations and codes, and the particular procurement documents drafted by the public body seeking bids. As such, each procurement process or bid dispute is highly dependent upon the unique circumstances in play. Consequently, whether you are seeking assistance in interpreting, defending or advocating for your rights under the public procurement process, it is important to retain an experienced bid protest lawyer.

Retaining an experienced bid protest lawyer as soon as issue arises is essential because bid protests occur under extremely quick deadlines. For example, bidders typically only have days to challenge final bid specifications or challenge who was awarded the bid. Bid protests and challenges to contract procurement and awards can be a tricky maze of complex statutes, rules, laws, and policies. By statute, bid protests are meant to move in the fast lane, and a business’ rights will be waived if there is inaction within a prescribed period. In fact, many bid protests are lost because the bidders fail to appreciate the incredibly strict time frames for filing a bid protest.

One of the best practices a business entity can have is to involve legal counsel in every stage of their business processes. With a skilled business attorney in its ranks, the business is able to protect its best interests from start-up, to growth opportunities, during times of dispute, and other endeavors such as participating in public and government bidding.
