Lockheed: New JLTV Info Prompted Court Complaint
WASHINGTON — New Army-supplied information that emerged toward the end of the Government Accountability Office’s protest process led to Lockheed Martin’s anticipated move to file a complaint with the US Court of Federal Claims over the US Army choosing Oshkosh to build its Humvee replacement, the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle, the company said.
Lockheed filed its JLTV protest on Sept. 8, and the GAO decision was due by Dec. 17. The GAO dismissed the protest Tuesday citing Lockheed’s decision to file a notice of intent to protest the award with the US Court of Federal Claims.
“Our office will not decide a protest where the matter involved is subject of litigation before a court of competent jurisdiction,” the GAO’s decision stated.
