  • By having a pre-bid review conducted by a professional Forensic Accountant and Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE), who is well versed in the arena of government bidding and the high level skill in a particular area such as Procurement Fraud detection, it provides a government contractors with a means of protection or defense to a low bidder and thus, substantially reducing the risk that its bid may be challenged by other bidders which may ultimately lead to the low biddders' bid being rejected by  a governing body due to a bid defect(s),some form of impropriety or other unlawful conduct. 

  • Given the various laws, regulations and other requirements which government contractors are subject as part of the governmenting bidding process, due diligence is so vital and may result in a low bidder having its bid ultimately rejected by a governing body and awarded to the next lowest responsible and responsive bidder as defined under the law.
