GAO Protest Jurisdiction over Most Task Order Awards by Civilian Agencies Ends Today

September 30, 2016

Pursuant to the sunset provision of 41 U.S.C. § 4106(f)(3), and resulting Congressional inaction, GAO protest jurisdiction over task order awards by Civilian Agencies will end today at 5:30 PM EST, except for “a protest on the ground that the order increases the scope, period, or maximum value of the contract under which the order is issued.” However, pursuant to Technatomy Corp., B-405130, June 14, 2011, 2011 CPD ¶ 107, GAO will likely have jurisdiction to decide protests filed before the deadline.
