SRA plans layoffs from lost contract

Protest of FDIC contract is still pending

SRA International is warning about 222 employees that they face layoffs come Jan. 1, the Washington Business Journal is reporting.

The employees were given notice under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notice Act, which requires 60-day notice of a possible layoff. The company said that it will try to find new positions inside SRA for as many employees as possible.

The SRA employees to be laid off are working on a large FDIC contract that SRA has lost. That contract ends Dec. 31.

The company has filed a protest over the award, but a ruling is not due until Jan. 30. The contract represented about 9 percent of the company’s revenue last year.

Non-Management level SRA employees on the FDIC will be re-hired by CSC. One of the few times it pays not to be an incompetent SRA manager.

Maybe just re-hiring the workers is not the best practice. If they lost the contract - Maybe they were not performing at a peak level.

Seems like they are just trying to scare people. If they lose, most of these workers will be hired by the new contractor.

So did SRA lose the contract or does it simply end on Dec 31?
