The Department of Homeland Security’s seven-year, $22 billion Eagle 2 information technology contract is getting buried under vendor protests, according to the Government Accountability Office.
More than 49 companies have filed protests against DHS with the GAO. Another firm, STG Inc., has filed a complaint in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.
GAO has 100 days to review each bid protest, which could drag out any task order awards until March. DHS awarded the small-business portion of Eagle 2 on Sept. 6 and the unrestricted portion on Sept. 27.
The companies protesting the award include Accenture Federal Services, Northrop Grumman Systems Corp., Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Harris IT Services Corp. and CGI Federal.
