Protest Case Highlights
The award of a HUBZone contract may be protested by an offeror, the contracting officer, or the SBA. There are three possible outcomes of a HUBZone status protest:
- Dismissed: the protest was not evaluated by the SBA because it was untimely, not submitted by an interested party, or not specific enough. In some cases when a protest is dismissed because it was not submitted on time, but the information presented was specific, SBA may file its own protest.
- Sustained: SBA found the protested company to be ineligible for the award and/or ineligible for (and therefore decertified from) the program.
- Denied: SBA found the protested company to be eligible for the award and for the program.
