We represented AM General (AMG), an automotive manufacturer that builds military vehicles for government customers, including the Humvee, in a successful bid protest involving a $9.7 billion contract for the U.S. Army to build and deliver to the U.S. Army a new generation of the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV). Oshkosh Defense LLC, the incumbent on the predecessor contract, among other things, protested the Army’s evaluation of both its and AMG’s technical proposals, as well as the agency’s evaluation of AMG’s price and cost proposal. The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) ultimately denied the protest, and in doing so, agreed with our team’s arguments that the Army reasonably evaluated proposals in accordance with the RFP’s evaluation criteria.
