Abstract:

Sole-source award for a follow-on procurement contract for the continued development of a complex weapon system is unobjectionable where the agency reasonably determined that award to any other source would likely cause unacceptable delay in fulfilling the agencys requirements. DRS Sustainment System DRS, of St. Louis, Missouri, protests a notice of intent to award a sole-source contract to General Dynamics-Ordnance and Tactical Systems General Dynamics, of Williston, Vermont, pursuant to solicitation No. W56HZV-19-R0063, issued by the Department of the Army, Army Materiel Command, for an active protection system APS and associated hardware for the Bradley Fighting Vehicle Bradley. The protester challenges the basis for the sole-source award and contends that the agency imposed a pre-award qualification requirement and failed to engage in advance planning.
