DHS Transformation Delayed, Again, by Protests

On November 30, 2010 protests were filed with GAO against the award of the DHS TASC contract. 

One protest was filed by the unsuccessful bidder, GCE.  The other was filed by years-long TASC antagonist, Savantage Financial Services - whose legacy software running in multiple DHS component agencies will eventually be replaced by the TASC solution. 

DHS is now forced to wait until March to proceed with much needed transformation and consolidation efforts to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of its homeland security operations.

Below are the protest docket numbers:
