Request for Debriefing Conference and Protest Procedure

Unsuccessful proposers have the opportunity to request a debriefing conference. The request must be made within three days of receipt of the written notification indicating that their proposal was not selected.

Discussions will be informal and limited to a critique of the requesting consultant’s proposal. This feedback will assist the proposer in understanding the strengths and weaknesses of their proposal. PSRC representatives will explain the scoring of a consultant’s proposal. Debriefings may be conducted by telephone and may be limited to a specific period of time.

PSRC will handle and resolve disputes relating to procurements and will disclose information regarding the protest to the awarding agency. A protester must exhaust all administrative remedies with PSRC before pursuing a protest with the Federal granting agency. Reviews of protests by the Federal granting agency will be limited to:

  • Violations of Federal law or regulations and the standards of this section (violations of State or local law will be under the jurisdiction of State or local authorities) and
  • Violations of PSRC’s protest procedures for failure to review a complaint or protest. Protests received by the Federal granting agency other than those specified above will be referred to PSRC.
