Logistics Applications prevails in DOE bid protest

The second time around might be the charm for Logistics Applications Inc., which has had to wait more than a year to take over its largest contract win ever.

The Alexandria, Va., company won an Energy Department contract in March 2005 worth $26.7 million over five years for facilities management services. DOE decided to outsource those functions after running an A-76 competition pitting its employees against the private sector.

The National Treasury Employees Union, representing the Energy employees, filed a protest with the agency that was upheld. The agency then reopened the competition.

Logistics Application won a second time, this time for a contract worth $28 million over five years. The contract is the largest the service-disabled, veteran-owned small business has won, and covers work at the agency's Washington headquarters and facilities in Maryland. About 90 jobs are affected.

The company provides conference management services, administrative support, contract closeout services, warehouse services, moving services and courier services.

The Treasury union protested the second award but this time was denied. It issued an angry statement following the decision.

"DOE clearly was determined to achieve this result from the beginning," said union President Colleen Kelley.
