The ongoing legal battle over the Army’s potential $82 billion LOGCAP V logistics services contract has taken a turn that disappointed bidders may be able to take some solace in.
In a Court of Federal Claims filing posted Monday, the Army told the judge overseeing the case it will take a second look at proposals for the fifth iteration of the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program with a focus on prices in each bid.
The review of price reasonableness determinations is anticipated to be completed within 45 days of a potential order of a stay in the case. After that, the Army intends to give the court a subsequent status report to update the judge and participants on the progress of this corrective action.
DynCorp International and AECOM were the two bidders out of six that were not awarded a seat on LOGCAP V in April and will thus have at least a second chance at the contract. KBR, Vectrus, Fluor and a PAE-Parsons joint venture were chosen for the potential 15-year contract that analysts see as reshaping the defense services market’s landscape.
McLean, Virginia-based DynCorp brought its challenge to the court in August after the Government Accountability Office denied that company’s post-award protest.
The Army made six awards in total with one company chosen per region. Fluor and the PAE-Parsons joint venture had protested the Army's awards of regions they did not win.
