Related issues will be covered, including, the difference between a responsive bid and responsible bidder, specification rules, changes during the solicitation process including rejections and cancellations, various contract types, and various contract clauses allowed in contracts.

This course covers the legal aspects of the dispute and review processes of the procurement law, and the remedies available. This course will examine the three types of disputes cognizable under the Procurement Act. The most talked-about dispute is over the solicitation or award of contracts, and this will be taken up in the detail of the law and regulation. The examination of each type of procurement dispute will begin with the agency-level dispute, progress to administrative review, if any, and introduce students to the judicial review process. Discussion of each dispute matter will include a look at the remedies available under the Procurement Act and other laws.
