Air Force to revise launch RFP
Posted: Sun, Dec 8, 2019, 11:02 AM ET (1602 GMT)
The Air Force will soon release a revised launch services procurement that addresses issues raised by the GAO. Col. Robert Bongiovi, director of the Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center's launch enterprise, said an amendment to the National Security Space Launch Phase 2 request for proposals will be released soon, but didn't give a specific date. Companies that previously submitted bids will have the opportunity to revise their proposals, and the Air Force still plans to award contracts in the third quarter of fiscal year 2020. The changes to the RFP stem from a GAO ruling last month on a protest by Blue Origin, who objected to the evaluation criteria laid out in the request for proposals.
