The Army has awarded an extension on its current contract for hardware, software and related services as the service branch awaits the outcome of a court ruling on the follow-on award.
Companies on the Army Desktop and Mobile Compuing-2 contract will continue their work for up to two additional years through April 23, 2020 with the ADMC-3 contract tied up in U.S. Court of Federal Claims. The Army issued an $870 million modification to the ceiling for ADMC-2, the Defense Department said in its Friday contracts digest.
ADMC-3 has been the subject of numerous protests since the Army first attempted awards in September 2016 and is currently with Court of Federal Claims for a second time after numerous protests.
After the initial awards, the Army took a corrective action to re-evaluate bids and chose the same group of nine companies that won in the first evaluation.
Mercom then filed a lawsuit over not being selected for ADMC 3 in Court of Federal Claims in September of last year after the company was not selected in either evaluation.
The Government Accountability Office then dismissed 12 other protests as the court’s jurisdiction outweighs that of GAO. ADMC-2 incumbent Telos joined Mercom’s lawsuit as did J.C. Technology and CounterTradeProducts.
Other incumbents in CDW Government and HPI Federal were among the 12 protests dismissed by GAO.
Companies currently on ADMC-2 are:
- HPI Federal
- Integrated Technologies Group
- NCS Technologies
- Transcource Services Group
