Navy Fleet Training Contract Is Competitive, Court Says

By Matt Sharp (February 17, 2015, 7:52 PM EST) -- The U.S. Navy's Naval Air Systems Command has not unduly restricted competition in soliciting bids for its Contracted Air Services fighter jets program, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims has said, dismissing a contractor's pre-award bid protest that it was treated unfairly.

Florida-based Draken International Inc. alleged NAVAIR is violating the Competition in Contracting Act and the Federal Acquisition Regulation through delays in the procurement process and by requiring that the winning bidder provide both subsonic and supersonic aircraft. The requirements, Draken claimed, will result in a "de facto sole-source award" to incumbent contractor Airborne Tactical Advantage Co. LLC.
