$900M Special Operations Command contract faces protest fight

Two companies are protesting a $900 million Special Operations Command contract that went to four other companies.

The losing bidders – Jacobs Technology and Academi Training Center – are asking for a new evaluation of the bids for the SOCOM Wide Mission Support or SWIMS contract.

Booz Allen Hamilton, Raytheon Blackbird Technologies, MacAulay-Brown and CACI WGI were named winners of the contract on July 28.

According to a sample statement of objectives, the prime contractors are to provide a wide variety of professional services  including program management, technical, engineering and test support, production engineering, research and development, logistics, and financial management support.

The goal of the contract is to give SOCOM support as it trains, equips and deploys forces around the globe.

There could be more potential protestors on the way. When the award was made, the Defense Department said that there 17 bidders.

Jacobs and Academi filed their Aug. 17 and 18. A decision is due Nov. 27.

According to Deltek, Jacobs is an incumbent on the predecessor contract, which was known as the Global Battlestaff and Program Support Services contract. CACI and Booz Allen also are incumbents on that contract. SRA International is as well.

No comment from SRA about whether they plan to protest as well.
