According to militarytimes.com, the US Government Accountability Office (GAO) has decided to negate the military move contract that was previously awarded to Team ARC. They may however still be able to rebid for the contract, worth up to $19.9 billion over a decade.
The GAO ruled that portions of the protests by other bidders for the contract awarded by the U.S. Transportation Command (TRANSCOM) were valid, thereby negating the contract and sending it back to TRANSCOM. The GAO went to say that they sustained several accusations by the protesters, including charges that they were treated unfairly during negotiations and that TRANSCOM used flawed measurements to determine which firm promised the best value.
TRANSCOM will now be required to revise their procedures before reissuing a new request for proposal. A new RFP will allow all parties, including Team ARC, the two protesting companies and others to rebid.
