Bid Protest Powder Keg: The New Wild West?
September 23, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT| free
In August 2015 the Alberta government terminated a $3 billion Laboratory Services RFP contract award and cancelled future related outsourcing after a bid dispute panel found fundamental irregularities in the bid evaluation process. With the Laboratory Services controversy serving as a case study, this webinar will consider the impact of the New West Partnership Trade Agreement bid protest procedures, which were enacted in July 2015, on government operations in B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan. This webinar will also assess the long-term implications of treaty-based bid dispute regimes on public institutions across Canada.
