This from armytimes.com: “The Government Accountability Office has denied a protest from firearms manufacturer Glock that sought to have the government reconsider its award of a 10-year, $580 million contract for the Army’s new handgun to a competitor.” GLOCK was angling for at least a portion of the lucrative contract.
Glock challenged the Army’s “interpretation of the solicitation regarding the minimum number of contract awards required by the” Request For Proposal, GAO spokeswoman Jennifer Ashley said in an emailed statement.
GAO denied the challenge, finding that the RFP allowed the Army to make only one award, although three were permitted under the proposal’s terms, she said.
Not to mention that GLOCK filed their protest after the deadline for doing so had expired. So barring any further action, the Army’s new handgun will, in fact, be the SIG P320.
