Thirsty Thursdays: An Edge in Doing Business with the Commonwealth – A Survey of Bid Protest Decisions for 2012

Stites Harbison LogoBuilders Exchange Allied Member Stites & Harbison will host this month’s Thirsty Thursdays networking event at Builders Exchange on February 28th.

Seminar Overview
While the economy may be improving, public spending has remained steady while private spending still lags.  As a result, there is more competition than ever for public contracts.  Last year saw a record number of bid protests being filed at the Finance Cabinet.
Beginning in 2008, the Finance Cabinet helpfully provided an index of its protest decisions, but soon stopped with the decisions issued in 2010.  A review of these decisions provides insight into how and why certain decisions are made.  This presentation will provide for the first time anywhere a review of the decisions issued in 2012, grouped by topic and relevance.  This review will provide the most current insight into the reasons why certain bid protests are granted and others are denied.
Any company or individual interested in how Kentucky’s public procurement system is being administered will be interested in attending to learn about this brand new resource being shared for the first time anywhere!
