Two firms have been cut from a $3 billion Department of Homeland Security contracting program because of Small Business Administration suspensions.
Neither EG Solutions nor MultimaxArray FirstSource, or MAF, was renewed under one-year contract options exercised this month for the First Source information technology program, DHS spokesman Larry Orluskie said today. Representatives for the two firms did not respond to emailed requests for comment this afternoon. Orluskie noted that the contract, first awarded in 2007, is set to be re-competed next year.
Both companies remain under suspensions levied by the SBA in November for alleged abuses of small business contracting rules. Based in Dulles, Va., EG Solutions is a subsidiary of Eyak Corp., an Alaska native corporation eligible for special treatment under government procurement regulations. MAF, headquartered in Greenbelt, Md., is a joint venture between Harris Corp. and Array Information Technology.
