Thornberry predicts NDAA debate on contractor protest process

April 25, 2016, Inside Defense

Jay Carey is quoted in this Inside Defense article discussing House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thornberry’s expectation that lawmakers will debate proposals to reform the way defense contractors protest losing bids. Carey, disagreeing with Thornberry’s view, says it is inaccurate to characterize contractor protests as being out of control. “Some folks within DOD believe that there are too many protests, and they have been beating that drum with Congress, asking Congress to 'rein in' protests, but that data just doesn’t support that view.” He further argues that there “aren't a lot of frivolous protests” when looking at the GAO statistics.
