The General Services Administration will finally re-award it’s multibillion dollar Alliant information technology contract tomorrow, the agency said.
The announcement comes about one year after a federal court upheld a protest against a previous set of awards GSA made, forcing the agency to re-evaluate the procurement meant to become the government’s premier IT contract.
Following the protest decision, Federal Times uncoveredÂ an apparent conflict of interest regarding the contractor GSA hired to collect performance information from the bidders. The GSA IG found other irregularities with GSA’s evaluation process.
One has to wonder whether this round of awards will spark new rounds of protests and more delays for the already troubled procurement.
