Over the course of two months, Patrick McGoey won two bid protests for contractors bidding to work for the City of New Orleans. The first concerned errors contained on a bid form and interpretation of recent amendments to Louisiana’s Public Bid Law. The second concerned whether a bidder was “responsible” under Louisiana’s Public Bid Law. As a result of SEMM’s success in the bid protests, its clients were awarded more than $7,000,000 in contracts from the City of New Orleans.
