Don’t ask for information you know the agency can’t release, such as the winning bid proposal or a detailed evaluation of the winning bid. What you can find out about is the evaluation for your proposal, Welch said.
Don’t be adversarial. In meeting with the agency, don’t take your attorney unless the agency’s attorney will be there. “A company bringing an attorney into debriefing will have the effect of shutting down communications,” Welch said.
