Department of Justice--Reconsideration and Request for Modification of Recommendation
B-406179.3: Feb 26, 2013
- Full Report:
The Department of Justice (DOJ) requests that our Office reconsider our decisions in NikSoft Sys. Corp., B-406179, Feb. 29, 2012, 2012 CPD para. 104, and NikSoft Sys. Corp., B-406179.2, Aug. 14, 2012, 2012 CPD para. 233, in which we sustained NikSoft's protests of the establishment of a blanket purchase agreement and placement of an initial "call" (or task order) to LS3 Incorporated under request for quotations (RFQ) No. 2011Q_49 for federal identity, credential and access management (FICAM) services. DOJ contends that NikSoft was not an interested party to maintain these protests because it had an organizational conflict of interest (OCI). DOJ also requests that we modify our recommendations that NikSoft should be reimbursed its costs of filing and pursuing the protests.
We deny the request.
