​APPEAL PROCEDURE

APHL has established an RFP Appeal Procedure that allows for venders/prospective venders to lodge a formal appeal concerning alleged improprieties or irregularities during the procurement process. Vendors or prospective vendors may submit an appeal at any time during the procurement process on a specific RFP, but they must do so no later than five days after APHL posts the winning bidder on that RFP or the overall bid tabulation on this site (www.aphl.org/rfp).

Any appeal must be submitted to APHL’s General Counsel via email or via overnight delivery to APHL’s headquarters office in Silver Spring, Maryland.  General Counsel will conduct an initial assessment and review of all appeals. If an appeal provides sufficient and credible detail on alleged irregularities or improprieties, General Counsel will have the authority to determine whether to forward that appeal on to APHL’s Operations group (composed of the Executive Director, the Chief Operating Officer, all Senior Directors and the Director of Human Resources) or to engage one or more independent third parties to investigate the allegations. The decisions as to whether an appeal provides sufficient detail and whether to engage outside investigative resources are final and not subject to further right of appeal.

In the event that APHL conducts an internal investigation into an appeal, the Operations group will be charged with providing an objective and unbiased independent review of the appeal and its allegations.  If one or more members of this group have a potential or perceived conflict of interest, those members will not participate in the internal investigation. The members of the Operations group free of a conflict of interest will then formulate a recommended course of action – which may range from no action to a complete re-compete of the RFP – and will provide supporting evidence to General Counsel as soon as is reasonably practicable or possible after receiving the appeal.

If APHL engages third parties to investigate the allegations raised by an appeal, General Counsel will be responsible for coordinating the investigators’ access to needed materials and personnel and will provide the Operations group with updates as needed or appropriate. Once the investigation is complete, the outside investigators will deliver a summary report of their findings and will provide a recommended course of action and at least one alternative course of action to General Counsel. General Counsel, in turn, will send the report to the Operations group and will work with group members to reach consensus on which course of action to pursue.
