Procurement Protest Policy

The Authority has established a policy for protests made by a respondent to any competitive selection process. A competitive selection process includes, but is not limited to, selections made pursuant to request for proposals, request for qualifications, sealed bids and the Consultants’ Competitive Negotiation Act. 

Failure to follow the protest policy set out in the Authority's policies constitutes a waiver of the respondent’s protest and resulting claims.
