AEDC TOS contract protested

Release Number: 030815

The contracting office at Arnold Engineering Development Complex has been informed that the Test Operations and Sustainment contract awarded to National Aerospace Solutions has been protested.

The protest will delay the start of the phase in period scheduled for July 1, and will likely impact the start of performance on Oct. 1.

The Facility Support Services (FSS) pre-award protest is on-going, no award has been made and no phase-in period start date or start of performance date has been set.

The AEDC Contracting Office is set to extend the current ATA contract past September to ensure mission continuity. As protests are resolved and the new contracts are awarded, requirements would then be removed from the ATA contract.

The Base Communications and Information Technology Services (BCITS) contract was awarded to OBXtek, Inc. June 19, and the phase-in period is expected to begin July 1 with performance to begin Oct. 1.
