    Description: 

    Is your other transaction (OT) award susceptible to protest in federal court?  Does it matter whether you are awarding a prototype or follow-on production OT? What impact will an OT protest have on your mission and team?  Join our knowledgeable panelists for a review of the statutes and case law governing OT bid protests and a lively discussion of what that means for Agreements Officers and other members of the acquisition workforce.
