More protests come in for $37.4B RS3 contract

As we predicted earlier, more protests have been filed over the on-ramp awards for the Army's $37.4 billion Responsive Strategic Sourcing for Services contract.

The Army has made 253 total awards so far out of 388 bids for this professional services contract known as RS3. Round one of awards went to 55 companies and the on-ramp saw 198 selected. Both large and small business contractors have won awards.

Last week, we reported that four companies -- 22nd Century Technologies, Modern Technology Solutions, Tele-Consultants and VT Services -- had filed protests.

Now four more have filed their objections:

  • Agile Defense Inc.
  • Beshenich Muir & Associates
  • Mission1st Group
  • Technology Service Corp.

Technology Service filed on Nov. 2 and a GAO decision is expected Feb. 11. The others filed on Nov. 5 with decisions expected by Feb. 13.

The first group of protests will likely fall on either Feb. 4 or Feb. 6. There also is a possibility that GAO will bundle the protests into a single decision, if the complaints are similar enough.

RS3 is the bundling of several expiring large IDIQ contracts including Rapid Response 3rd Generation, known as R2-3G, and Strategic Services Sourcing, or S3.

The Army has said both a second and third on-ramp will be awarded later on.
