Have contract debriefings gotten worse?
We are launching the research phase of a new WT Insider Report focused on the quality of agency debriefings and their relationship to bid protests.
We did a similar report two years ago but a lot has happened since then. We are convinced that it is time to revisit this topic.
Click here to take the survey.
Our 2016 report drew a straight line between the quality of debriefings and the likelihood that a company will file a bid protest.
Since then, a lot has happened as Congress has gotten involved. But many of its efforts seem to be focused on discouraging companies from filing protests and not as much on improving debriefings.
Whatever the direct effect of congressional action in the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act, the bottom line is that agencies know more people are watching how they are conducting their debriefings and how that relates to bid protests.
With this report, we’ll look back at the 2016 results to see how the perspective of industry has changed and evolved and whether they are seeing any improvement and where problems remain.
We’ll also dive deeper into the types of debriefings that companies find valuable by asking questions specific to oral debriefings and written debriefings.
We’ll start promoting the survey soon, but you can take it now right here.
Spread the word too. The more people that take the survey, the more insightful the data is.
As an incentive, you can register for a drawing to win one of three $50 Amazon gift cards when you complete the survey.
The results of our research will be used to product an exclusive Insider Report available to our Insider members.
The report will be published in September. Click here for information on becoming a WT Insider.
