BILLION DOLLAR CONTRACT BID PROTEST REJECTED AS UNTIMELY
ArmorWorks Enterprises LLC, a Chandler, Arizona company that manufactures body armor, recently lost a federal bid protest filed in the Government Accountability Office (GA)) because the protest was untimely. ArmorWorks claimed that it lost the contract because of inadequate and inconsistent testing by the army. The contract was apparently worth as much as $1 billion. But, rejected the protest because it was not filed on time.
This case is a blatant example of the importance of filing a timely and complete bid protest.
