GAO Slams VA for Reneging on Its Corrective Action Promise

(Aug. 12, 2015), GAO roasted the Veterans Administration when it reneged on its promise to cancel the award as a part of its corrective action and, instead, after the protest had been dismissed as moot at VA's request, accelerated performance and received full delivery, thereby thwarting the protest process. GAO granted reconsideration of its dismissal decision and sustained the protest on the basis that the solicitation contained a latent defect and awarded bid preparation and protest costs.
