Leidos unit facing protest challenge to $900M health care win
NOTE: This blog has been updated to correct incorrect information. QTC did not win the contract in March 2018. There was no award then, only a pre-award protest by Logistics Health.
Leidos continues to face off against a disappointed incumbent that claims it should have won the Army's $900 million Reserve Health Readiness Program III contract.
Logistics Health updated its protest this week of the award that went to Leidos subsidiary QTC Medical Services,
Logistics Health is arguing that the evaluation was not done properly and it would have won over QTC.
The contract provides the Army with physical exams, vaccinations, behavioral health assessments, dental exams and other related health care services.
In March 2018, Logisitics Health filed a pre-award protest that led the Army to take a corrective action in April to make changes to the solicitation. The protest was then dismissed.
QTC won the contradct in March of this year and that sparked these new protests by Logistics Health. The supplemental filing this week won’t delay GAO’s schedule to have decision by July 22.
While the protests are pending, Logistics Health continues to provide the medical services. A bridge contract runs through Dec. 1, 2020. Deltek data indicates the contract has been worth $1.8 billion to Logistics Health. Logistics Health is owned in part by United Healthcare.
Leidos picked up QTC when it acquired Lockheed Martin’s IS&GS business in 2016. Leidos added more of a health care footprint last year when it acquired IMX Medical Management Services, which also provides health services and medical record reviews. IMX became a unit of QTC.
