This summer, BHGR successfully protested a federal procurement bid for one of its construction clients. The matter was heard by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) in Washington, D.C., which determined that the government's bid process was flawed and, therefore, fundamentally unfair to bidders. As a result, BHGR's client was awarded its costs for bid and proposal preparation as well as its costs for filing and pursing the protest, including reasonable attorney fees. Partners Giovanni Ruscitti, Dan Gross, and Heidi Potter worked on the case along with associate, Justin Berg. "We were pleased with the ruling and feel that justice was done given the flawed nature of the bid process" said Giovanni Ruscitti.
