LOGCAP V competitors flock to court case

DynCorp International early this week took its concerns over being excluded from the Army's LOGCAP V program to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. The court yesterday granted the motions by several other competitors to intervene in the case.

Meanwhile, the Government Accountability Office said today it is dismissing the remaining protests on the program because of the pending court case.

GAO late last month denied DynCorp's protest.

In today's decision, GAO said the "court's resolution of DynCorp's protest challenging the agency's evaluation of proposals and resulting award decisions could render a decision by our Office on AECOM's, Fluor's, and [PAE-Parsons'] similar challenges academic."

The Court of Federal Claims yesterday granted the motions of KBR, Vectrus, Fluor and the PAE-Parsons team to intervene in the case.

However, the court denied a motion to intervene filed by AECOM. The court filing indicates the lawyers for both DynCorp and KBR opposed AECOM’s intervention.

AECOM argued it should be allowed to intervene because DynCorp's filing "deprived AECOM of a decision at GAO, its chosen forum."
