The GAO [The US Government Accountability Office] provides a forum for bidders and offerors seeking federal government contracts who believe that contracts have been, or are about to be, awarded in violation of the laws and regulations that govern contracting with the federal government. A bidder or offeror can file a bid protest with GAO, and GAO issues a decision on whether the federal agency has complied with statutes and regulations controlling government procurement.
CRS has produced a report about the background and procedures for these bid protests. It is available here.
A CRS report on the GAO itself can be accessed here.
