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.
