COMPLIANT OUTCOME LEAVES NOBODY HAPPY …

By CBR Staff Writer

The outcome of that complaint by six IBM plug-compatible vendors and integrators that the US Navy routinely rigged tenders to favour IBM (CI No 1,076) is such as to leave nobody happy according to Government Computer News, the Request For Proposals, which was originally issued in November 1987, and protested a year later, has now been cancelled because the requirements have changed: it called for six configurations of IBM compatible central processing units, front-end communications processors, storage devices, tape drives and other equipment to upgrade the service’s Navy Regional Data Automation Centres; led by Pacificorp Capital Inc, an IBM-compatible systems integrator in Reston, Virginia, the protest by the six led to an investigation by the Navy that concluded that it did restrict competition.
