MCLB contract workers off the job again

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - From Marine Corps Logistics Base Press Release:

A recently awarded government contract that provided for the care of warehoused supplies for Marine Corps Logistics Command has been disputed on Jan 26 by a company that did not win the contract.

The $8.5 million contract, awarded to Prime Tech International, Inc. on Dec 23, encompasses areas of inventory management and control, serialization, general warehousing, storage, tactical vehicle maintenance, kitting, marking and labeling equipment, as well as distribution of Marine Corps principal end items.

Under Federal Acquisition Law, when an awarded contract is disputed a stay, or work stoppage, has to be placed on the contract work until the matter is resolved by the Government Accountability Office.

This is the second time that the award of this contract has been disputed by the same company.

One hundred ninety-nine Prime Tech International, Inc. employees were issued notices Monday because of the dispute. None of these personnel are government employees.

Officials cannot comment further while the matter is under litigation. The litigation process can take the General Accountability Office up to 120 days to resolve.
