The Government Accountability Office has dismissed General Dynamics’ (NYSE: GD) protest of the Defense Information Systems Agency’s award of a potential $6.52B contract to Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) for Department of Defense Information Network support services, FedScoop reported Friday.
Leidos can now continue to manage DODIN and provide network services to military users under the Global Solutions Management-Operations II contract the Reston, Va.-based company originally won in December.
GAO determined that the bid protest did not support allegations by General Dynamics’ information technology business that DISA “engaged in misleading negotiations” as the agency evaluated the bidders, the report noted.
The government audit agency found that DISA considered Leidos’ price proposal in a proper manner.
The company also resumed work on a $450M contract covering information technology services to U.S. Air Force personnel writhin the National Capital Region.
