Peraton fights rejection from Special Operations Command contract gorodenkoff

The company objects to its elimination from a competition to deliver media messages as part of SOCOM's information operations.

Peraton didn’t make it pass the first phase of a competition for a U.S. Special Operations Command task order to provide management and technical expertise.

The company has gone to the Government Accountability Office protesting the decision to eliminate the company from consideration. The task order is being competed under the OASIS professional services vehicle.

The command wants management and technical support to deliver “culturally relevant internet-based media messages” as part of online Military Information Support Operations, or MISO.

MISO is the modern term for what was called psychological operations, or PSYOPS, during the Vietnam War.

The task order under Pool 1 of OASIS will have a one-year term with four one-year options.

Peraton first filed its protest on July 27. A supplemental protest was filed Sept. 7, after the command submitted its report. The due date for a Government Accountability Office decision is Nov. 6.

Peraton did not respond to a request for comment.
