The American Small Business League (ASBL) on March 23 filed a suit against the U.S. Department of the Navy after the agency allegedly refused to fully release subcontracting reports on contracts awarded to Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC).

The ASBL contends that the "refused" reports could show that SAIC and the Navy's contracts avoid a federal law that requires 23 percent of federal contracts be awarded to small businesses.

Initially, the ASBL requested individual subcontracting reports and a summary subcontracting reports on "a prime contract awarded to SAIC under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)," according to a press release.
