The FBI – again – violated procurement rules in awarding a bid to Motorola Solutions for a new two-way radio system, the Government Accountability Office has concluded.

The Sun Herald reports that the GAO determined that the FBI solicited bids based on features that only Motorola can provide.

The contract was worth $335 million.

Lawyers for the GAO urged the FBI to cancel the solicitations after Motorola rival Harris Corp. protested.

The FBI has been trying to replace its 30-year-old Motorola system.

FBI Cancels $500M, No-Bid Contract with Motorola Following Protests from Competitors

Protests from other vendors have prompted the FBI to cancel a $500 million, no-bid contract to Motorola Solutions Inc., the McClatchy Washington Bureau reports.

The FBI declined to use the competitive bidding process because the bureau already uses Motorola, and it would cost $1.2 billion for a complete new system.

Three vendors filed formal protests to the Government Accountability Office, which handles such cases.

In response, assistant FBI General Counsel Jack Cordes Jr. said the requirements in the FBI’s solicitations were “not clear” and that the no-bid contract doesn’t comply with Federal Acquisition Regulations.

“Therefore, as corrective action, the FBI will cancel the solicitation and reassess its requirements, as well as the acquisition strategy for meeting them,” he wrote.
