Army Eyes Resolicitation for Multipurpose Equipment Transport Vehicle Program

Jeff Brody

The U.S. Army intends to recompete a program to develop a squad multipurpose equipment transport vehicle, National Defense reported Wednesday.

“Vendors can expect a new [request for proposals] in January, and will have 30 days to submit a bid. The target award date is 30 April 2020,” according to an Army Contracting Command email obtained by the publication.

The service decided to cancel a previously awarded contract in December and launch a resolicitation for the SMET program after one of the competitors filed a protest with the Government Accountability Office.

General Dynamics’ (NYSE: GD) land systems business won a potential five-year, $162.4M contract in October to build a SMET vehicle for the Army. Other vendors that competed for the robotic mule development program are Textron (NYSE: TXT), HDT Global and the team of Applied Research Associates and Polaris Defense.
