Successful Representation of B&O Joint Venture, LLC in Multiple Bid Protests, Among Other Actions

Bass, Berry & Sims has been privileged to represent B&O Joint Venture, LLC (B&O JV), an 8(a) small business joint venture, in multiple actions relating to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) award to B&O JV of vital maintenance services supporting ongoing training of federal law enforcement officials at FLETC’s Glynco, Georgia facility. Those actions have included Government Accountability Office (GAO) pre-award protests, multiple GAO post-award protests, a Court of Federal Claims (COFC) challenge to FLETC’s override of the Competition in Contracting Act (CICA) stay, a Federal Circuit appeal of COFC’s denial of the CICA stay override challenge, a Small Business Administration size protest, and a COFC bid protest, among other actions. A more detailed description of these attempts by a disappointed offeror partially owned by the former incumbent, all of which have been resolved in B&O JV’s favor, can be found on our blog. The Federal Circuit appeal of the CICA stay override decision and the COFC bid protest are still pending.
