GovCIO continues to challenge VA’s choice of General Dynamics IT and the department has opted to look at the award again.
A back-and-forth battle between GovCIO and General Dynamics IT over a $400 million Veterans Affairs Department contract has entered another round now that the agency has again decided to rethink its award decision.
GovCIO first won the contract for file conversion services in late 2022, but a successful protest by GDIT in the spring of 2023 forced VA to take a second look at its decision.
VA reversed course and awarded the contract to GDIT in August, which of course led to protests by GovCIO. The agency responded to the protest within weeks and pulled back the award to GDIT to re-evaluate.
GDIT won the contract a second time in December, which was followed by another GovCIO protest on Dec. 26.
The Government Accountability Office dismissed the GovCIO protest on Friday after VA said it would take another corrective action.
