William W. Warren, Jr., a partner in Saul Ewing’s Government Contracts Practice, wrote this article about the challenges government lawyers face in advising state agencies on procuring information technology (IT) services and equipment.  

In the article, he suggested they apply the “seven-day rule” for bid protests with greater circumspection and waive it when necessary as well as make bid documents more easily available to those who wish to protest bids. These changes, he wrote, would make the process more fair and encourage more vendors to participate.
