Missouri on September 2, Thus far, it has taken the United States Army 1, days and counting to award a contract for support services at its Yuma Proving Ground.
In the course of that procurement the Army has so far made three source selection decisions and suffered four protests to the Government Accountability Office and four protests to the U.
Court of Federal Claims. The Army has taken corrective action twice and has proposed to do so a third time. It has had two different source selection authorities, two different chairs of the source selection evaluation board, and three contracting officers.
The source selection was still underway as of the end of March The Yuma Proving Ground service procurement is evidence of two problems that plague Government contracting: As described in the latest protest decision in this saga, Jacobs Technology, Inc.
The source selection evaluation factors were mission capability, past performance, small business participation, and cost. The three non-cost factors were approximately equal in importance to each other and, in the aggregate, approximately equal to cost.
Unfortunately, the baseline did not include crucial information, the result being that the offerors did not, in fact, estimate costs on the same basis.

The Army discovered the problem during the proposal evaluation. Instead, the Army pressed on. The Army announced that it would take corrective action and the GAO dismissed the protest.
And then, astoundingly, the Army did not fix the problem. The Army again announced that it would take corrective action and issued Amendments 7 and 8 to the RFP.
The GAO again dismissed the protest. TRAX and Jacobs submitted revised cost proposals, and guess what? TRAX protested yet again. This time it complained not only about the failure to establish a common baseline, but also that the Army had allowed Jacobs to change its oral presentation slides without requiring it to make another oral presentation, as required by the RFP.
Jacobs filed suit at the Court of Federal Claims complaining that the Army should have overridden the stay. The Army announced that it would take a third corrective action. The court denied the protests, freeing the Army to proceed with a third corrective action. That is where things stood as of last March The Army got into trouble because it tried to find a way to provide offerors with a basis to estimate what could not be estimated—the annual cost of a complex, long term, frequently changing service requirement, a problem that the court described beautifully at the end of its decision.
There was no way for any of the offerors to estimate what it would cost to provide support services at Yuma Proving Ground for a year.

One line item would be for a firm-fixed-price contract with award-fee for day-to-day general management and supervision services and for administrative services such as safety, quality control and assurance, purchasing and materials management, property management, human resources management, and accounting.
The other line item would be for a cost contract no fee for materials, labor, and other direct costs to be incurred for performance of support services.
Under such a contract, with a day-to-day contractor management team in place and an advance agreement on any indirect cost rates applicable to the cost no fee line item, the parties would jointly plan and manage performance. The contractor would make its best effort to execute the plan by performing the support services under the cost no fee line item.
The Government would have the final say on planning decisions.Links to online books and articles relating to the American Revolution generally and to the Southern Campaign specifically.
