DynCorp: Army challenges GAO verdict Print
FALLS CHURCH, Va. - April 11, 2007

DynCorp International said Wednesday the U.S. Army is challenging a decision made by a watchdog agency on a disputed $4.65 billion linguistics contract.

Last month, the Government Accountability Office backed a protest filed by L-3 Communications Holdings Inc. saying the Army did not "reasonably apply" evaluation factors stated in the bidding process. The New York-based company filed the complaint Dec. 22 after the five-year deal went to Global Linguistics Solutions LLC, a joint venture formed by DynCorp International Inc. and McNeil Technologies Inc.
The contract will provide translators and linguistics services to the U.S. military in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Representatives from the GAO and the Army could not be immediately reached.

According to DynCorp, the Army is requesting the GAO reverse its March 29 decision so it can award the contract to the Global Linguistics.

Shares of DynCorp fell 20 cents to $15.20 in afternoon trading on the New York Stock Exchange, while shares of L-3 Communications fell 72 cents to $88.64, also on the NYSE.
