  • You Can Win a Protest Even Though the Protest is not Sustained

    Every year, the Government Accountability Office reports to Congress several statistics relating to GAO’s bid protest function. The big news this year is that the “Sustain Rate” — the percentage of protests that resulted in a GAO decision granting the protest — nearly doubled in FY 2016 (22.56%) compared to FY 2015 (12%). In absolute terms, GAO sustained 139 protests in FY16 compared to only 68 in FY15.

    So, what do these numbers really mean for protesters’ chances?
