DoD Implements New Enhanced Debriefing Procedures


On March 22, 2018, the Department of Defense (DoD) issued a Class Deviation to ensure that all DoD agencies comply with the enhanced post-award debriefings set forth in in Section 818 of the FY 2018 National Defense Authorization Act. Effective immediately, offerors may submit additional questions within two business days of their debriefing, to which the agency is required to respond within five business days. A protest filed within five calendar days of receipt of the Government’s responses to additional questions will trigger issuance of the automatic stay of performance provided for by the Competition in Contracting Act.
