Booz Allen fights back after loss of $600M Navy recompete

Booz Allen Hamilton has lost a recompete for a $600 million contract that has been worth $260 million to the company since 2010.

The company then filed a protest with the Government Accountability Office on Jan. 19. A ruling is expected by April 30.

A new Navy contract for financial improvement and audit readiness support has apparently gone to newcomer Deloitte and incumbent KPMG.

According to Deltek’s data, Booz Allen is the incumbent with the most task orders by dollar value on the current contract with $260.1 million since 2010.

KPMG also was an incumbent and has picked up about $134.4 million in work under the contract.

Accenture, a third incumbent, had $221.1 million in task orders. They also appear to have not won the recompete. I have requested comment from Accenture and will update if I hear anything back from them.

Booz Allen has so far declined to comment.

A source has told me the company is complaining about a flawed source selection process and that the Navy refused to provide a debriefing on the contract.

According to solicitation documents, the Navy is looking to buy 7.6 million labor hours over five years for finance and audit support.

The labor hours are broken down into five categories:

  • Strategic at 90,000 hours a year
  • Program management at 320,000 hours a year
  • Financial at 680,000 hours a year
  • Business systems at 350,000 hours a year
  • Training at 90,000 hours a year
