Leidos must not need any government contracts. Now, they have twice tried to bite the hand that feeds them, which will certainly influence their future prospects working for .gov.

Any more talk on NNSS coming under SNL's wing?

Anonymous said...

Never heard that. SNL does not do much at NNSS. Given that a 5-10 year contract was just awarded, it does not appear to be a current line of thinking by NNSA.

Don't know much about government contracting, do we? If you did, you would be aware that some of the largest government contractors file numerous bid award protests with GAO.

Per the last two sentences of Sec J Amd 1, the new SNL manager needs to claim it is ready to assume full responsibility for NNSS before it can also take over SNL.

An interesting find. So Lockheed won NNSS on assumption it would win SNL, but Leidos was not a player in the SNL bid, and the sale of the contract to Leidos threw a wrench into the plan. Honeywell won SNL, and then won NNSS because it had won SNL and had also bid on NNSS.

That is obviously a typo. What is next? Elvis is alive and well with aliens?

There is proof of that.

A second GAO protest has been submitted by the Northrup bid team. https://www.gao.gov/docket/B-414750.2

The NNSS reference in the Sandia RFP was a typo that was corrected in a later amendment. They copied the clause from the NNSS RFP.

Washington Bureaucrats at work. Dump them, Mr. Trump, as you promised to do --- "drain the swamp". !

So, another year delay?

Honeywell at Kansas City, Sandia and Nevada.

There was an email at nestec saying a ruling is expected in September. So, guaranteed that nothing will happen until after Oct. 1.

Why protest? Do they recind contracts because of protests?

Anonymous said...

It has happened but rarely. The probability of success in changing the award is low while the probability of making NNSA/DOE mad is high. DOE is good at "boiler plating" their selection process to avoid changing the award.

Anonymous said...

It would be interesting to know how much DOE and the bidders have spent on this contract. Probably not a "best value" process.

If you are the current contractor and the NNSA picks someone else to take over, then you get to keep on running the show until all the protests are over, and then 90 days after the last appeal is timed out. Not a bad proposition to keep paying all your high level managers their big salaries, even if they eventually will have to move out.

And the decline, er, transformation continues...

Are you suggesting NG's reason to protest is to make more fee and keep high paid managers employed?

That occurred to me as well, more fee and continued high pay for people who will be sent packing eventually. Win, win, why not protest even if you have no basis for protesting and you know you will lose.

Our tax dollars at work. Drain the swamp.

Who are you pretending is listening to you when you bray your mantra of "drain the swamp"? Hint: NO ONE. Trump IS the swamp. He makes it deeper and murkier every day, every time he embarrasses himself with his inane and insane tweets. Sad. Presidents over a hundred years ago learned to just shut up. He is Obama all over again, except less sane, and way less knowledgeable.

Now even the ProForce contract is being protested,,, https://www.gao.gov/docket/B-414800.1

The expression "drain the swamp" came on long before Donald Trump. I remember hearing it at Pratt & Whitney Florida Research and Development Facility (FRDC) outside West Palm Beach in 1970. The comment that DOE HQ needs help is independent of 2017 politics. Chill out!
