New Protest Jurisdiction at GAO

Jun.17.2008

On June 9, 2008, the Government Accountability Office issued a final rule amending its rules for protests pursuant to various authorization and appropriations act changes (http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2008/pdf/E8-12790.pdf). Specifically, the Transportation Safety Administration is now subject to GAO protest, federal employees have expanded protest rights in challenging award decisions in A-76 procurements, and GAO's rules now accommodate the recently enacted authority to protest task order awards over $10 million issued on or after May 27, 2008.
