- Full Report:
Brian X. Scott protests the terms of request for proposals (RFP) Nos. W91GY0-06-R-0015 (RFP-0015) and W91GER-06-R-0013 (RFP-0013), issued by the Department of the Army, Joint Contracting Command-Iraq/Afghanistan, for cargo transportation and security services in and around Iraq and for base security services in Iraq. The protester contends that each solicitation's statement of work (SOW) requires performance of security services that constitute the provision of "quasi-military armed forces for hire," which would result in the award of a contract that violates the Anti-Pinkerton Act, 5 U.S.C. sect. 3108 (2000), and Department of Defense (DoD) instructions and regulations.
We deny the protests.
