Appellate Court Rejects DHS TASC Protest

SAVANTAGE FINANCIAL SERVICES, INC. v. THE UNITED STATES, CAFC No.
2009-5076, February 22, 2010.

Pre-award bid protest. DHS procurement. The court affirms the COFC decision which found it logical that defendant would want to ensure its success by seeking a fully integrated system, both on the basis of its own experiences and those of other agencies and departments. The court agrees "with the trial court that DHS has a rational basis for requiring an integrated financial, acquisition, and asset management system that is currently fully operational within the federal government... " ".....Therefore, we reject Savantage's contention that DHS's requirements constitute a pretextual cover for demanding an Oracle-based system. Because we agree with the trial court that DHS has a rational basis for requiring an integrated financial, acquisition, and asset management system that is currently fully operational within the federal government, we uphold the judgment of the Court of Federal Claims".
