GAO Gets Back Jurisdiction to Decide Civilian Task and Delivery Orders Valued Above $10M

Posted on December 15th, 2016 by

For a brief period of time this year, the GAO lost jurisdiction to hear protests over civilian task and delivery orders above $10M. This left contractors with no remedy to challenge the manner in which the Government evaluated proposals for award of civilian task or delivery orders. Thankfully, this jurisdiction has been restored by the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act.  On the other hand, the Act increases the jurisdictional threshold for non-civilian task orders from $10M to $25M, which will narrow the GAO’s jurisdiction involving task/delivery orders for military procurements.
