United States : NASA postpones award of $20B SEWP V contract

August 20, 2014

NASA has announced that it has delayed the offering of its $20 billion Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V contract until September.

The postponement is mainly due to the large volume of bids the agency received, which called for a lengthy review and selection process. Nearly 70 contractors exist on the SEWP IV contract.

NASA spokesperson Sonja Alexander said the delay was also partially because of a bid protest against the contract.

IMPRES Technology Solutions, Inc., Metis intellisystems, LLC, Futron, Inc., Patriot Comm and Ideal System Solutions, Inc. said NASA has unreasonably decided their bids exceeded the approved page limit. However the GAO denied the protests in an Aug. 5 decision.
