GAO tells HUD: Re-open HITS

The Government Accountability Office has recommended that the Housing and Urban Affairs Department once again re-open competition for the $750 million HITS contract, which HUD twice awarded to Electronic Data Systems Corp.

If HUD follows the recommendation, it will be the third time the agency has solicited bids for the Information Technology Systems contract.

GAO faulted HUD for holding more "meaningful discussions" with EDS than it did with Lockheed Martin Corp.
