GDIT wins DEOS again

After taking corrective actions on the Defense Enterprise Office Solutions (DEOS) contract, the General Services Administration and the Department of Defense have re-awarded the deal to the original winner, General Dynamics IT and its subsidiary CSRA. But this time, the cloud-based enterprise back-office IT solutions contract is estimated to have a much lower value. GSA initially awarded the contract to GDIT in August 2019, which Perspecta protested twice, leading to the corrective actions that saw both companies lose out in what the agency said was a “fair, transparent and equitable process.” Dave Nyczepir has the news.
