Excellent infographic and tabular data presentation. It would be useful to do the same thing for protests that go straight to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. They are much more lengthy and costly to the protester. Except for pavlovian protests filed by firms you could name that use protests as a bullying tactic most firms, especially small ones, simply cannot afford the cost of the protests. Unfortunately they also cannot afford the loss of good will in what is a very unlevel marketplace. I have seen a number of occassions were protestable awards were not protested because the economics don't add up in the face of a customer that doesn't understand why they can't buy what they want/need instead of what they asked for in the RFP according to FAR rules. It is simply not worth the trouble to educate them in a protest.
While the volume of protests went down, so did the number of new contract awards. Is it really down a percentage basis?
