Navy moves to centralize its contracting and payment processes for overseas husbanding services after its investigators find tens of millions of dollars in overcharges resulting from bribes.
Virtually every one of DoD's acquisition programs took a hit from sequestration in the first year of sequestration, officials from each of the military services told lawmakers this week. But the next few years of the 10-year spending restrictions could be much more painful, especially if Congress doesn't return to the process of enacting regular appropriations bills.
Without commenting on the reasons behind the protest, a team led by Computer Sciences Corporation challenged the Navy's decision to award a multibillion dollar contract to operate IT networks to a competing team headed up by HP.
Hewlett Packard, the same vendor which has owned and operated the Navy Department's networks for more than a decade will continue a similar role under a new multibillion dollar contract. But the Navy and Marine Corps will take ownership of their IT infrastructure and reserve the right to recompete any or all of it at a future date.
Small firms already have taken a disproportionate hit from DoD's pullback in 2013 spending, Pentagon officials say. Military acquisition leaders worry the sudden cuts will bankrupt small businesses that provide one-of-a-kind capabilities.
