Peraton wins new shot at Army intelligence contract

The company will get the opportunity to address conflict-of-interest concerns in the intelligence support contract competition.

Peraton is back in the running to support the Army Intelligence and Security Command after the company's elimination for a perceived organizational conflict of interest.

In a successful bid protest, Peraton argued that it never had a chance to respond to the government’s concerns of a conflict before the company was eliminated.

The Army will reopen its investigation and this time will interview Peraton and relevant employees, prompting the Government Accountability Office to dismiss the protest.

Following the investigation, the Army will make a new determination on whether Peraton has an unfair advantage. Peraton also will have an opportunity to respond to the Army’s findings.

Army officials will not award the contract until after the investigation.

Known as INSCOM, the command is a conduit for intelligence data. It processes raw data from multiple sources and produces intelligence that is then distributed to military commanders.
