GAO will launch a new, web-based, electronic bid protest filing system, and require protestors to pay a filing fee of $350. http://www.gao.gov/legal/bid-protest-notices/about Does anyone think this will significantly affect the number or quality of GAO protests? PepeTheFrog imagines that any effects will be minimal because $350 is not much of a deterrent for filing. What does the forum think? Excerpt from GAO daily bid protest digest, 2016-04-26: "New Process Coming: This summer, GAO will establish a secure and easy-to-use web-based electronic bid protest filing and dissemination system (EPDS). EPDS will also provide automatic notice of a protest to the agency. Once it is live, all protesters will be required to use the system to file new protests, and there will be a $350.00 filing fee. Funds from the filing fee will be used to pay for the operation and maintenance of the system. This new process necessitates changes in GAO's Bid Protest Regulations found at 4 C.F.R. part 21."
