GAO protests Booz Allen bid

Contractor artificially lowered costs according to GAO decision

The Government Accountability Office wants to pull the plug on a $25 million contract awarded to Booz Allen Hamilton by the Defense Information Systems Agency after it was discovered that the contractor "fudged" costs to lower its bid, reports Nextgov.

Costs of its employees' workspace was the main area of contention, according to a redacted form of an April 6 GAO decision released on April 29.

The task order, enabling data transmission between secure Defense Department networks, was initially awarded to Solers Inc. with a $27.4 million bid, but was later taken back after Booz Allen said officials hadn't carefully looked at the bids, the article said.
