SAIC battles for piece of $1.8B judiciary IT contract

Science Applications International Corp. and IndraSoft were both left off of a $1.8 billion contract to support the federal court system, and they aren’t too happy about it.

Both companies have filed protests with the Government Accountability Office questioning the awards that went to AT&T Government Solutions, Camber Corp., CRGT Inc., Actionet Inc., Intelligent Decisions and SRA International.

Intelligent Decisions and SRA are incumbents on the Judiciary Multiple Award Services contract that the new JMAS IV contract replaces, but other incumbents—BAE Systems, Ciber Inc. and Avaya (through its acquisition of Nortel)—did not retain their positions.

They have not filed protests yet, but the window for filing a protest is still open. I’ve reached out to the companies; no word yet, but I’ll update when I hear back from them.

The JMAS contract is used by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts to provide IT support to the federal courts around the country including software engineering, communications and systems integration.

The companies on the contract compete for task order under the contract. Each of the winners has a $300 million ceiling, according to Deltek.

In addition to the courts, the contract is also used by the Federal Judiciary Center, the U.S. Sentencing Commission, and the U.S. Supreme Court.

IndraSoft filed its protest March 9, and SAIC filed March 11. The due dates for a GAO decision are also two days apart – June 17 for IndraSoft and June 19 for SAIC.

Of course, there is always a good possibility the awards are pulled back for re-evaluation. Another contract delayed.
