GSA sustains Boeing protest of Seat Management awards

The General Services Administration last week upheld Boeing Information Services
Inc.’s protest of the agency’s Seat Management Program contract awards.

It is unclear, however, what the ruling will mean for the company, the PC outsourcing
program or the eight winning Seat Management vendors. In agreeing that the Vienna, Va.,
company’s protest had merit, a senior GSA procurement official did not opt to halt
work on Seat Management, award the company a contract or nix the contract of any of the
selected vendors.

Gabrielle James, a contracting officer with the Seat Management Program Office in
GSA’s Federal Technology Service, said there are many ways the program’s
managers could respond to the ruling.

But, James said, the ruling “does not imply that Boeing will be granted an
award,” nor does it change the eight contracts that GSA awarded.

The Seat Management Project office has until Sept. 20 to respond to the latest ruling,
she said.
