CAE USA issues challenge to $106.9M Space Force award
CAE USA Mission Solutions is pushing back on the government's decision to award a $106.9 million Space Force training contract to a competitor.
The contract was awarded to Sigmatech through the Federal Supply Schedule vehicle to support the National Security Space Institute.
CAE is arguing that the bids were not properly evaluated. If they had been, CAE says they would have won.
The contract covers instructor services to the National Security Space Institute.
The institute is the U.S. Space Force’s organization for continuing education and as well as supporting education programs at the Air University, Naval Postgraduate School, and the Air Force Institute of Technology.
Courses offered there range from the basics -- Introduction to Space to higher level classes such as the Joint Space Planners Course.
Classes can take anywhere from a few hours to multiple weeks.
CAE filed its protest March 11 and a decision is expected by June 21.
