MarineLog is reporting the issue of the text of the GAO’s decision on the protest of the award of the OPC contract.
“Interestingly, the GAO decision includes a Coast Guard table that indicates that all five shipyards that responded to the RFP got “Superior” ratings for the soundness and mission effectiveness of the concept designs offered and also for their design approach. All were rated “Satisfactory” for organizational management and production capability. On past performance, though, differences emerged. Bollinger and Bath Iron Works were rated ‘Satisfactory,’ Eastern was rated ‘Superior,’ but both Huntington Ingalls and VT Halter got ratings of ‘Marginal.'”
