Bid Protests

Lodging Bid Protests in Los Angeles, California

Gill and Baldwin ● Handling Construction Law Since 1962

As part of its responsibility to taxpayers, government entities are forbidden from showing favoritism when awarding government construction contracts. With some exceptions, they are expected to choose the contractor who can do the best job at the best price.

In order to decide who that contractor is, they have to follow strict rules. Anyone who bids on a government contract is expected to follow strict rules as well. If you believe a government contract was bid or awarded unfairly, we can help you protest it.

Statutory Requirements for Bidding on Government Contracts

Government entities are required by statute to choose the bidder who offers the lowest price while still meeting the qualifications for the job and the statutory requirements for bidding on government construction contracts.

After another contractor wins a contract, you may make a viable bid protest if:

  • The other bidder didn't properly fill out bidding forms
  • The other bidder isn't prepared to hire the required minimum number of subcontractors
  • The other bidder failed to acknowledge any recent changes made to the government's contract
  • The government entity failed to comply with statutes relating to women's and minority business enterprises

If you're considering filing a bit protest, we can help you determine whether or not your case has merit. We give down-to-earth advice based on what's in your best interest — not our own. To schedule an appointment at Gill and Baldwin, P.C., call 866-778-8034 or contact us online today.
