Law360 Covers Steptoe’s GAO Victory for CACI in IT Deal Bid

September 2, 2016

Steptoe’s win for CACI International Inc. in a bid protest of a Department of Defense solicitation for multiple global IT contracts was covered by Law360 in an August 5 article titled “GAO Sustains Protests Over $17.5B DOD IT Deal Bid Process.”  Steptoe challenged the terms of the solicitation, arguing that the evaluation structure was flawed.  GAO sustained the protest, which is rare given agency discretion in defining needs and choosing the method to evaluate those needs.  GAO agreed with Steptoe that the cost evaluation scheme was flawed in two ways and recommended that the agency revise the solicitation. 

Steptoe partner Sharon Larkin led the team with assistance from Mike Navarre and Nick Petts.
