Bid Protest/Appeal Process
For procurement contracts under $100,000, SHA shall follow an informal bid protest/appeal procedure. Under these procedures, the bidder/contractor may request to meet with the Contracting Officer. For procurements over $100,000, a formal appeals procedure shall be followed. Any actual or prospective contractor may protest the solicitation or award of a contract for serious violations of the principals of SHA’s Procurement Policy. Any protest against a solicitation must be received before the due date for the receipt of bids or proposals. Any protest against the award of a contract must be received within ten (10) calendar days after the bidder/contractor receives notice of award or the protest shall not be considered. All bid protests shall be in writing and submitted to the Contracting Officer, who shall issue a written decision on the matter. The Contracting Officer may, at his/her discretion, suspend the procurement pending resolution of the protest.
