Protests of $255M State Department Diplomatic Security Cyber Mission support award dismissed

G2X TAKE: Both protests filed in relation to this recently awarded 6-year task to provide the Bureau of Diplomatic Security with a range of services, to include security program planning, network security monitoring, cyber threat analysis, enterprise technology assessments and technical security analysis, have now been dismissed.

This strategic and important task, competed on CIO-SP3, was awarded to Northrop Grumman earlier this month, but was initially held up as the contracting office dealt with protests put forth by the two other bidders –  ManTech and a known incumbent, GDIT. No details have been provided at this time as to the grounds for the protests or the reason for the quick dismissal. More information will be shared here as it is made available. 

Please note that a ‘dismissal’ by GAO does not necessarily mean the issue is resolved and oftentimes only indicates the contracting authority/agency has agreed to proactively take some corrective action to address a deficiency identified as part of the protest process.
