Smiths Detection protests TSA award of contract for AT-2 passenger screening systems

Smiths Detection has filed a formal protest with the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) of an award by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for a delivery order of an indefinite quantity of Advanced Technology 2 (AT-2) carry-on baggage scanners and ancillary equipment. TSA announced the award on 27 September, 2013.

Smiths Detection, one of three companies included in the tender, finds that TSA's ‘Best Value' analysis and evaluation of AT-2 submissions was flawed because it insufficiently weighted the comparatively lower risk and lower lifecycle costs of Smiths Detection's more advanced technical solution.
