Department of the Treasury, Bureau of Engraving and Printing--Request for Modification of Remedy; Johnson Controls Security Systems, LLC--Costs
B-296490.6,B-296490.7, May 31, 2007
The Department of the Treasury, Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP), requests that we modify the recommended corrective action in our decision Johnson Controls Sec. Sys., LLC, B-296490.3 et al., Mar. 23, 2007, 2007 CPD para. ___, in which we sustained Johnson Controls and Security Systems' (JCSS) protest against the award of a contract to Quanta Systems Corporation under request for proposals (RFP) No. BEP‑04-0022, issued by BEP for operation, monitoring and repair of various security systems at the agency's currency production facility in Washington, D.C. The agency asserts that it would serve no useful purpose for it to implement our original recommendation in light of changes to its requirements. The protester argues that, if the agency's request is granted, our Office should recommend that it be reimbursed its proposal preparation costs.
We agree that modification of our remedy is appropriate here.
