GAO upholds part of Blue Origin protest of Air Force launch competition
Posted: Sat, Nov 23, 2019, 9:58 AM ET (1458 GMT)
Blue Origin New Glenn (Blue Origin) The Government Accountability Office sided with Blue Origin in the company's protest of an Air Force launch competition. The GAO said it sustained the protest the company filed regarding the National Security Space Launch phase 2 competition, which claimed the terms of the procurement unduly restrict competition, are ambiguous or are inconsistent with customary commercial practice. GAO sided with the Air Force on other aspects of the protest. The GAO decision is under seal because it contains proprietary company information, but the agency said it is working to make a public version available. The Air Force said it is reviewing the part of the protest sustained by the GAO and "expects to resolve this issue definitively and expeditiously."
