HEROS, Inc., B-292043, June 9, 2003 * REDACTED DECISION
B-292043: Jun 9, 2003
DIGEST Protest is sustained where solicitation to overhaul helicopter engines contemplates less than full and open competition. The agency has concluded that the successor-in-interest to the original equipment manufacturer of the engine is the only entity that possesses adequate information to successfully overhaul the engine. Which is unknown to the Army. That is necessary to successfully overhaul the T63-A-720 engine. We further found that the agency's conclusion that only RRC possessed the information necessary to overhaul the T63-A-720 engines was not reasonably supported. In the event an AMC is the successful offeror. RRC will provide that AMC with RRC's "secret" information. That is.
