The purpose of any procurement process is to obtain ‘value for the money.’ Bid protest systems are designed to help. The U.S. Department of Defense, NATO, the EU, UN, OECD, and WTO, all authorize losing bidders to protest public procurements. The threat of a protest is meant to increase government accountability, and encourage vendor participation. An extensive legal and regulatory literature discusses intended benefits of protests, but is surprisingly silent about the expenses. The purpose of this study is to look at both costs and benefits. Military acquisition provides an illustration. The dual objective is to reduce corruption, and maximize competition. Sadly, protest systems can inadvertently discourage both. Moreover, past protests by defense companies have produced significant costs, and triggered dangerous delays of critical defense equipment, materiel, services, and supplies necessary for national security. The static, probabilistic, micro-economic, partial equilibrium, representative bidder model presented in this paper offers a cautionary tale for defense organizations, government agencies, countries, and international institutions that authorize bid protests. The model reveals multiple potential deficiencies of protest systems, and recommends analysis of portfolios of alternatives to remove fraud and favoritism, and increase competition, to improve procurement outcomes.
