Vectrus: Army to amend K-BOSSS solicitation

November 9, 2016 at 11:43 AM

Vectrus said today the Army has decided to take corrective action on a contract for base operations and security support services in Kuwait, after all four losing bidders filed protests.

Vectrus was the incumbent on the program, dubbed K-BOSSS, but it was awarded to KBR-Triple Canopy earlier this year.

According to the GAO bid protest docket, A2K, the Defense Support Alliance, Fluor Federal Solutions and Vectrus filed protests.

Vectrus said today it received notification from the Army early this week that the service is moving to resolve the protest. The Army will amend the solicitation to clarify its requirement, request revised proposals, conduct discussions if needed and then make a new award, the contractor said.

The K-BOSSS contract runs through Dec. 28, Vectrus noted, adding that it has an option to extend it through March 28.

Vectrus also reported this week that sales in its most recent quarter hit $284 million, down from $299 million during the same three-month period the prior year. The company's profit declined to $6.6 million, down about 53 percent from a year earlier.
