Bidding and Pricing

We can review solicitations clients are considering before clients make a bid/no bid decision.  We identify special provisions that could add to the cost of performance or limit cost recovery – Such as special billing requirements or rate ceilings.  Often, we spot inappropriate contract clauses in time for them to be removed before they become a problem.

Common services in this area include the following:

  • Solicitation Reviews
    • Clause Package Review and Comment
    • Billing Requirements Analysis
    • Special Provision/Cost or Rate Ceilings Impact Analysis

Bid Protest Work

Within the increasingly competitive federal marketplace, bid protests are being used more and more by government contractors as a last ditch effort to secure or protect a contract award.  CohnReznick has extensive experience and success in performing cost or price realism analysis in support of bid protests and in analyzing cost or price realism analysis performed by government procurement officials.  Our analysis has successfully supported the defense of $200 million plus contract awards as well as the protest of multi-billion indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract awards.
