The FH+H Government Contracts team, including Partner Milt Johns and Associate Rachel Leahey, successfully prosecuted a bid protest for a client that resulted in the agency taking voluntary corrective action that provided the possibility of additional competition for the work.
The agency agreed to voluntarily terminate a blanket purchase agreement issued on a sole source basis. The termination came little more than one month of its issuance, and after only a fraction of the value of the BPA had been spent on the awardee. The agency also agreed to reconsider its acquisition strategy and issue a revised solicitation.
The protest succeeded due to persuasive argument that in preparing its limited source justification in support of the award, the agency failed to comply with the relevant Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR).
