GAO upholds IAP Worldwide Services protest of US Army Iraq logistics contract

According to this story in the Orlando Sentinal, the GAO upheld in October the protest by IAP Worldwide Services and Contingency Management Group of the award to a team headed by KBR to provide long-term logistics support to the US Army in Iraq. This GAO ruling will allow the two companies to rebid on the contract that could be valued at up to $150 Billion. There are three possible protests open to a losing bidder. First, the can protest to the Agency that awarded the contract, here it would be the US Army. Then the Government Accounting Office, and finally to the US Court of Appeals. The protest was upheld because “The GAO said the Army showed unjustifiable favoritism in awarding the troop services deal to KBR and Fluor. It also failed to seriously consider KBR’s past performance and the critical cost issues cited by defense contract auditors,”.
