Protest season opens for $231M Army training contract

In April, the Army named 10 winners on its $231 million contract for training and education support and now in early May the first protest has rolled in.

Piton Science and Technology filed its protest earlier this week after being left off of the multiple award contract.

The contract includes large business winners and small business winners. Piton is a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business based in Oakton, Va.

For this contract, the Army created a pool of contractors to support training and education activities of the Army Combined Arms Center. The center supports training and education efforts for field grade officers. Some of the work includes training and education strategies, scientific human subject studies, and development of doctrine, concepts, instruction and products.

Piton also is on the GSA Human Capital and Training Solution contract known as HCaTS, a multiple-award vehicle with a $5.8 billion ceiling.

The company filed its protest May 1 and a decision is expected Aug. 9.

While the protest is pending, GSA cannot make any task order awards.

There were several incumbents who failed to wins spots on the contract so more protests could be coming. Some of the missing incumbents include one large business in L3 and several small businesses. Piton is not an incumbent on the contract.
