Court of Federal Claims Reaffirms VOSB/SDVOSB’s
Rights to Due Process During Protests

Last week, the Court of Federal Claims issued its opinion in Ambuild Company v. LLC v. U.S. AmBuild is a major victory for veteran-owned because it reaffirms their due process rights in the context of status protests.

The AmBuild case is of particular interest to me and my colleagues because it concerns the interpretation of a Department of Veterans’ Affairs (“VA”) regulation that was promulgated in response to a successful ruling we secured for a service-disabled veteran-owned small business client last year (Miles Construction, LLC v. United States (Case No. 12-597C)). In that case, the VA improperly canceled the SDVOSB status of our client, Miles Construction Company, LLC’s (“Miles”). The cancelation happened as a result of a protest from a competitor. What was interesting was that the VA’s ultimate basis for cancelation was something that was never alleged in the protest.

Why and How to Use Sources Sought Notices
and RFIs to Your Advantage Webinar

Thursday, November 20
1:00 - 2:00 pm ET,
 10:00-11:00 am PT
Presenter: Gloria Larkin, Targetgov
Federal agencies have posted an unprecedented flood of new Sources Sought Notices on FedBizOpps – over 1,600 new Sources Sought opportunities in the last 30 days! Many Sources Sought Notices go unnoticed by the businesses to whom the Federal Government would like to award contracts. The savvy business person takes time to review these opportunities, identify those that are a good fit and respond accordingly. In the know business people also use these notices to create single source awards and start agency-focused marketing campaigns. Attend this webinar to learn how to respond to a Sources Sought Notice (SSN) or Request For Information (RFI) that will position your company to win contracts!

Topics covered during the webinar include:
  • The purpose of these notices
  • The value of responding to these notices
  • How to respond to a Sources Sought Notice (SSN) and Request For Information (RFI)
  • Common mistakes made, and what to avoid in your responses
  • How to position your firm before and after responding
  • How to flip it to a sole source award
  • Follow up steps to responding
All attendees will receive a copy of the presentation and the TargetGov Guide to using FedBizOpps (FBO) to find Sources Sought Notices
