How does the public bid process work, and how do I protect my rights on public bid protests?

The public bid process is the legal framework for governing the appropriate method for which owners on public projects award bids. It was enacted to ensure fairness and prevent corruption in the public bidding process. The procedures and rules for public bidding are strict, and any technical mistake could have a public bid award thrown out.

If the owner on a public bid doesn’t follow the legal requirements of the public bid process, a party can file a “bid protest” to challenge the procedures that were followed to award the public bid—and hopefully have the bid thrown out.
