Has your company ever lost a contract and wished it could get a “second bite at the apple”? Have you started transitioning a contract and then been stopped in your tracks? Join Devon Hewitt in a discussion about the federal protest process including the types of protests that can be filed, the forums in which protests can be filed and the advantages/disadvantages of each forum. Ms. Hewitt also will discuss the key timelines associated with bid protests, the possible outcomes of a protest and the impact of a protest on project managers of all types.

About the PM Industry Insights
PM Industry Insights is PMIWDC's workshop series that addresses the practical aspects of Project Management.
These sessions are to provide you with insights on what is going on in the local industry so you can learn from it. This discussion-based session will include presentations on tools, industry panels, interviews with industry experts, workshops, etc. The target presenters will be individuals from PMO’s, university professors, consultants, etc.
Both PM Industry Insights and the monthly dinner meeting are worth 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU) each to certified PMPs. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
