News – Work on CSC’s TSA Contract Halted Due to Protest

Unisys Corp. and General Dynamics Corp. are protesting the Transportation Security Administration’s award of its lucrative infrastructure contract to Computer Sciences Corp.

The protest has brought a halt to CSC’s work on the contract, according to Washington Technology. The company had started work on a 90-day transition plan when CSC signed the contract in late September.  A TSA spokesman said that the transition process would resume when the dispute was resolved.

TSA allowed Unisys back into the final round of competition after Unisys protested its failure to make the downselect for the final bidding process.  Bids for the contract were limited to holders of the Homeland Security Department’s Eagle contract. Unisys, General Dynamics and CSC were the only three companies to pursue the contract into the final phase of the competition.
