GAO backs Army in LOGCAP V advisory opinion

In a new advisory opinion, the Government Accountability Office said it has no basis to object to the Army's actions in the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program, better known as LOGCAP V.

GAO in July denied DynCorp International's protest related to LOGCAP V, but had not ruled on the protests filed by other competitors when DynCorp filed suit in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. GAO then dismissed the remaining protests.

Competitor AECOM also filed in court, seeking an advisory opinion from GAO.

In the opinion, released today, GAO said the "record shows [the] agency's evaluation and source selections were reasonable and consistent with the terms of the solicitation and applicable statutes and regulations."

AECOM, GAO noted, argued the Army misevaluated proposals and made "unreasonable" source selection decisions.

"Based on our review, we would have no basis to object to the agency’s actions," GAO wrote.
