OMB recommendation led to TASC protest at DHS

When Homeland Security Department officials agreed late last summer with an Office of Management and Budget recommendation to reduce the planned rollout of the DHS Transformation and Systems Consolidation project, they set themselves up for failure.
It was that agreement--and a failure to accordingly update the requirements of the TASC solicitation--that led in large part to the Government Accountability Office sustaining on March 9 a protest from Global Computer Enterprises of Reston, Va., against the Nov. 19, 2010 award of the $450 million TASC contract to CACI, of Arlington, Va.

The GAO released on March 16 a redacted version of its protest award decision, with source selection sensitive data such as pricing removed.
