Bid Protests
Represented multiple contractors in pre-award protests of disqualification or exclusion from the competitive range, resulting in Agency corrective action and eventual contract award.
Successfully represented one of the two domestic providers of medium and heavy space launch services in a series of protests, first at the agency level, then before the GAO and finally before the Court of Federal Claims, relating to the Air Force’s multi-billion dollar Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle (“EELV”) program through which the Government has traditionally launched its classified and other critical satellites.
Represented a developer and manufacturer of Airport Surface Detection Equipment (ASDE) in protesting and securing a highly favorable settlement of a proposed sole source procurement before the Federal Aviation Administration’s Office of Dispute Resolution for Acquisition. The FAA specifically agreed not only to withdraw and restrict the proposed sole source procurement but also to use its best efforts to provide our client with new contracting opportunities relating to the technology at issue.
Successfully represented one of the largest base-maintenance and service contractors in protesting the Department of Army’s decision to retain project services and logistics functions in-house under OMB Circular A-76. Following successful pursuit of both the cost appeal to the agency and the GAO protest, the Army awarded the contract to our client. We then successfully defended a protest relative to the same procurement that was filed by a disappointed offeror from the private sector.
Successfully protested the multi-billion dollar award of one of the first major omnibus information technology contracts known as “TMAC” (Treasury Multi-User Acquisition Contract). The GSBCA’s decision was one of the first to articulate and chart the course for the Government’s widely accepted “best value” award standard.
Handled (with appropriate security clearances) several protests involving classified projects.
Successfully protested the Air Force’s award of a contract for the supply of GCAS (Ground Collision Avoidance Systems) for C-130 air-craft. The central issue involved the Government’s calculation of life-cycle costs for each offeror.
Successfully protested an award of a base maintenance contract in which the GAO reformulated its rules regarding the treatment of organizational conflict of interests.
Successfully defended a protest against the award of a contract for systems integration of an agency-wide information technology system for the Veterans Administration.
Represented one of the largest shipbuilders in a protest of the Navy’s major roll-on/roll-off ship construction competition.
