FY05 Protestors Achieve Effective Relief 37% Of Time At GAO

January 27, 2006

GAO recently reported to Congress a 23% "sustain" (win) rate for protests decided in FY05. Even more impressive, GAO reported an "effectiveness" rate of 37%, meaning that, between winning the protest and having the agency concede error and take corrective action before a decision was rendered, protestors obtained effective relief in over one-third of the protests resolved last fiscal year.
