Indus Corp. files protest of DHS' Eagle contract award

Indus Corp. of Vienna, Va., has filed a bid protest over the Homeland Security Department's multibillion-dollar Eagle contracts for IT services.

The Eagle contracts, which allow winning vendors to compete for task orders by DHS components, could amount to as much as $45 billion over more than 10 years. The contracts were awarded June 29.

Indus spokesman Robert Blumenthal confirmed that his company had filed a bid protest with the Government Accountability Office recently.

Indus executive William Yeager filed the bid protest by e-mail on July 11, according to Dan Gordon, GAO's managing associate general counsel. The agency has assigned attorney John Melody to lead the group handling the matter. GAO is due to issue a decision by Oct. 19, according to its Web site.

DHS awarded Eagle contracts to 25 bidders and planned to issue comparable contracts to small-business bidders around July 31.

The contract's full name is Enterprise Acquisition Gateway for Leading Edge solutions.
