AT&T challenges MacB's Air Force win
AT&T Government Solutions is challenging an Air Force award to MacAulay Brown worth $37.9 million.
Little is publicly available on the contract as the statement of work apparently is classified. The contract’s solicitation number is FA8773-15-D-8301.
AT&T is arguing that it should have won the contract, not MacB.
One thing that is interesting to me about this protest is that AT&T and MacB are going head to head. It shows the evolution of the market for both the large telecom companies such as AT&T, which have built up substantial professional services business, and companies such as MacB, which are getting into higher-end network services.
Even five years ago, you might not see them competing against each other, but today, you do.
Both companies are on Alliant, SeaPort-e, and some of the same GSA schedules including ones for IT and professional services.
I don’t know what contract the Air Force award was competed under, but if you do, let me know.
