Amendment 0002 to extend offer due date.
Added: Jul 02, 2014 1:05 pm
 

GAO, after careful consideration, has determined that the cancellation of RFP GAO-14-N-0011 is in the best interest of the Agency.  GAO has determined that significant revisions to the RFP are necessary. These changes include revising and clarifying important technical requirements, removal of the competitive prototype phase, and  changing the contract type and evaluation criteria. GAO has determined that these changes should increase competition and reduce performance risk to the Agency.  Further, these changes are substantial and would exceed what prospective offerors reasonably could have anticipated.  Therefore, in accordance with FAR 15.206(e), GAO has decided to cancel the RFP.
