Perspecta objects to $325M DHS awards

One unhappy bidder has filed a protest over the Homeland Security Department’s $325 million Systems Engineering and Technical Assistance III contract.

Perspecta has filed the protest with the Government Accountability Office after it was not chosen for the five-year vehicle.

DHS announced the four winners last week: Engility Corp., ManTech International, Noblis and Science Applications International Corp. SAIC is in the process of acquiring Engility.

ManTech and Noblis are incumbents on SETA II. A third incumbent in Booz Allen Hamilton did not win a spot on the recompete. I’ve reached out to Booz Allen for comment and will update this post if I hear back.

There could be other possible protesters as DHS received 18 bids for the contract.

Perspecta, listed as Vencore, filed its protest Dec. 17 and a GAO decision is expected by March 27.

DHS’ Science and Technology Directorate uses the contract to acquire research-and-development and other technical support services.

The contract also covers test and evaluation support as part of DHS S&T’s broader mission to drive innovation and creation of new technologies that help protect the U.S.
