Contractor Wins Directed Award In A-76 Protest
The GAO in BAE Systems Tech. Servs., Inc. (Jan. 28, 2004) (represented by C&M), directed the Navy to award a contract to the private offeror in an A-76 competition in which the in-house entity failed to comply with, or include costs for, various solicitation requirements. GAO determined that the agency's post-protest attempts to cure the in-house offer’s deficiencies were "inappropriate" and damaging to "the integrity of the A-76 process" and criticized the agency for failing to perform the independent review mandated by the A-76 process when it reviewed the in-house offeror’s compliance with only one portion of the solicitation, rather than all.
