BID PROTEST

Consulting firms battle for $100M DOD project

Three consulting firms are protesting an award to a fourth over a $100 million contract for cost accounting services.

KPMG, Deloitte and PricewaterhouseCoopers have filed protests with the Government Accountability Office objecting to DOD’s decision to award a contract to Boston Consulting.

The contract is a blanket purchase agreement issued under the GSA schedule and supports DOD’s Office of Deputy Chief Management Officer.

All three companies are challenging DOD’s evaluation of their proposals. In other words, they believe they should have won the contract, not Boston Consulting.

The protests were filed on different days between Feb. 12 and Feb. 19. The decision from GAO is expected by late May.
