Legal Meets Practical: Accessible Solutions

SDVOSB Bid Protests

I understand that for a small business, filing a bid protest is a big decision due to the time, expense, and stress involved. I can help minimize these three reasons why service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSBs) are deterred from filing meritorious bid protests:

  • Time – By hiring a professional to handle your SDVOSB bid protest, you leave your employees free to engage in valuable work-related matters.
  • Expense – My hourly rate for SDVOSB bid protests is extremely competitive due to minimal overhead costs.
  • Stress – Putting your SDVOSB bid protest in the hands of a professional decreases the stress involved. I will present the strongest protest grounds possible, clearly explain the process to you, and keep you informed and updated. I have experience with protests at the Small Business Administration level (for SDVOSB status and size), agency level, before the Government Accountability Office, before the U.S Court of Federal Claims, and at the SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals. I know the procedural rules and nuances, so you don’t have to.
Being involved in a bid protest is never ideal. It can, however, be a solid business decision due to the stakes involved. My experience with SDVOSB bid protests – including size, SDVOSB status, and other grounds, provides me with the tools needed to help you protect these stakes.
