Well, Frak! About that LRS-B Protest...the waters are muddied.

It seems the LRS-B protest might get some extra hullabulloo.

Richard Lombardi, a top Blue Beanie acquisition official, failed to disclose his wife had a retirement account with Northrop. He was NOT involved with the LRS-B decision, but it is going to cast a pall on the decision now. More so than had his wife had a Lockheed account. He apparently voluntarily came forward with the information and was moved to a nonacqusition job elsewhere in the Air Force.

Even so, I couldn't help but groan at this. Just what the protest needed. Something to muddy the waters.

They'll overturn to be safe. They're trying hard to downplay it but the Air Force can't afford this, especially now.

Can you clarify on what you mean by overturn? Do you mean re-compete?

Yep. That's the only way to remove any possible controversy from it.

Ugh. If it happens, what are your thoughts on time to final decision - again?

They should be firing him. That was a MAJOR frak up that just cost millions of dollars.

It'll be quick. The bids will be the same and they have everything already.

At this point it's not up to them unless they decide to tell the GAO they are. It's up to the GAO to decide if they are or not.

16th for the date for the GAO deadline, right?

Yeah, that marks 100 days.

So...it's more of a dog and pony show, jumping through the hoops and motions to say:

"Look, we let people re-compete all over again. yeah yeah...okay whatever moving on.."

Sort of a CYA thing I take it?

protest denied




The GAO denied the protest despite the revelation last week that a top Air Force acquisition official had failed to report a Northrop retirement account held by his spouse in his annual public financial disclosure form. The timing of the news raised questions about implications to the protest decision, but the Air Force maintained that the official, Richard Lombardi, was not involved in the LRS-B source-selection process and was not the service acquisition executive at the time. The Air Force reassigned Lombardi to duties outside the acquisition portfolio and referred the issue to the Inspector General
