Bid Protest Spotlight: Jurisdiction, Standing, GAO Limits

Law360 (November 8, 2019, 5:57 PM EST) -- This installment of the bid protest spotlight examines three protest decisions released in October. The first decision, Akira Technologies Inc. v. U.S.,[1] discusses the U.S. Court of Federal Claims conclusion that it lacks jurisdiction to review task order modifications.

The second decision, American Relocation Connections LLC v. U.S., the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit clarifies the difference between the prejudice needed for standing and for a successful protest on the merits.

The third decision, Team Wendy LLC, focuses on the U.S. Government Accountability Office's ability to review bid protests involving the AbilityOne procurement list.
