The Air Force may rethink the award decisions on the high-profile NetCents II contract and is calling for the Government Accountability Office to dismiss a group of bid protests around the contract.
In an Air Force letter to GAO, the service said it will take a “corrective action” on the $6.9 billion contract. “Specifically, the agency intends to reopen discussions with all offerors in the competitive range and allow them to submit another round of final proposal revisions,” the Air Force wrote in an letter obtained by Washington Technology.
NetCents II includes commercial products including networking equipment, servers and storage, peripherals, multimedia, software, and identity management/biometric hardware and associated software.
