SAIC protests $850M Army contracts, defense publication reports

Contractor cites Army's 'errors in evaluation process'

Science Applications International Corp. filed a protest Aug. 26 against the Army's award of Ground Combat Vehicle technology development contracts to two teams led by BAE Systems and General Dynamics Land Systems, according to a published report.

Officials at SAIC, whose team included Boeing Co. and a German company, contend that the Army made "errors in the evaluation process" and “chose not to appropriately integrate existing, proven technology into a comprehensive solution," as the service looked at the three bids to develop its new infantry fighting vehicle, SAIC spokeswoman Melissa Koskovich said in a statement to Defense News.

General Dynamics' group, which includes Lockheed Martin Corp. and Raytheon Co., received a $440 million contract. BAE Systems, which teamed with Northrop Grumman Corp., received a $450 million award.
