BAE challenges $300M intell award to CACI
A nearly $300 million contract for intelligence-related work in Afghanistan is at the center of a fight between CACI International and BAE Systems.
Details on the task order awarded by the Army Intelligence and Security Command are light. The work involves intelligence support services in Afghanistan and the contract was awarded as a task order under a larger IDIQ contract.
The value of the task order is $281.7 million and it was won by CACI. BAE filed a protest with the Government Accountability Office claiming the company would have one if the Army had properly evaluated proposals.
A decision from GAO is expected by Oct. 20.
BAE and CACI have done extensive work in Afghanistan.
CACI currently has an 18-month, $67 million contract with the Army Intelligence and Security Command to provide mission support services.
BAE has performed aircraft maintenance in Afghanistan as well as development and support work connected vehicles.
Both companies also hold spots on the Army's $7.2 billion Global Intelligence Support Services contract.
