DynCorp goes to court for another chance at Army $82B 'LOGCAP V'

DynCorp International is taking its fight for another chance at the Army’s potential $82 billion “LOGCAP V” logistics services to the judicial arena in the wake of its protest being denied.
McLean, Virginia-based DynCorp filed a complaint under seal Monday with U.S. Court of Federal Claims seeking a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction, according to court filings.
The move comes less than a week after DynCorp’s post-award protest was denied by the Government Accountability Office in a decision that is also sealed for the time being.
DynCorp is an incumbent from the ongoing fourth iteration of the Army’s Logistics Civil Augmentation Program that covers logistics and other professional services worldwide.
LOGCAP V differed from the fourth version in being a more consolidated procurement that saw awards divided by regional commands, but Afghanistan was set aside for an individual source selection. The new structure led many analysts to view the new version as a contract that helps set the global defense services market’s broader landscape.
KBR and Vectrus came out as the largest winners when the Army made awards in April, while Fluor Corp. and a PAE-Parsons joint venture each won commands with much lower ceiling values.
Other protests involving LOGCAP V could be dismissed soon given that the Court of Federal Claims has more authority to enforce rulings in procurement than GAO.
AECOM is in the same spot as DynCorp in wanting another shot to get back on the contract to begin with, while Fluor Corp. and the PAE-Parsons venture were unhappy with awards made for certain individual commands.
