AT&T wins second shot at $1.6B in FBI telecom work
When a company files a bid protest, one of the things it hopes for is at least get another shot at the contract in question.
That’s what AT&T has earned in pursuit of a pair of FBI task orders worth a combined $1.6 billion. The FBI has agreed to re-evaluate proposals for a $1.2 billion task order for telecom services and a $419.3 million job for data networking and voice services.
Both orders were awarded through the Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions contract vehicle.
Verizon won the $1.2 billion order, while Lumen took the data networking award.
In its protest, AT&T said that the evaluations were not done properly. Rather than argue with AT&T in response to the protest, the FBI agreed to re-evaluate and make a new selection decision.
There is no timeline for the new award.
