Awards Reinstated After Faulty 'Corrective Action'
In WHR Group, Inc. v. U.S. (Apr. 8, 2008), the Court of Federal Claims set aside an agency's "corrective action" terminating three blanket purchase agreements for employee relocation services because that action was not narrowly tailored to address the flaw in the underlying procurement. While the agency cited a laundry list of reasons for why it believed termination and reprocurement was necessary, Judge Block rejected nearly all of them and, as to the one issue that legitimately raised a concern about the prior evaluation, he concluded that a reevaluation would address the problem without a full resolicitation.
