Incumbents battle for lost training contracts

Two incumbents – General Dynamics and Northrop Grumman – have filed protests after the Army picked a third company to be prime on a consolidated training contract.

Technically, the contract was awarded to Parsons Government Services by the Interior Department, but it is a training contract for the Army National Guard Mission Command Training Support Program.

The new contract consolidates contracts held separately by GD and Northrop. According to Deltek, GD’s contract was worth $27.9 million and Northrop’s was worth $124.9 million.

A source told me the contract Parsons won is worth $113 million.

The contract is used for training battle staffs, information systems operators and leaders and commanders who need training in mission command skills. The contract supports mobile training teams and a variety of training complexes around the country.

Supported training includes live, virtual and gaming domains as well as distributed learning and distributed exercises.

A decision from the Government Accountability Office is expected by July 27.

As I said, this contract was awarded as a task order by the Department of Interior Business Center, Acquisition Services Directorate, on behalf of the Army National Guard. Interior used the GSA Federal Supply Schedule program to make the award.
