This webinar explores the topic of debriefings. The expert presenters will help you to understand the debriefing process from the perspectives of both the government and the disappointed offeror. They will explain the debriefing requirements of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and the role of debriefing in the acquisition process. They will explore how ineffective debriefings can lead to bid protests, and how effective debriefings can discourage or focus bid protests, what tools are necessary to prepare a debriefing, and how to maximize the value of the debriefing.
