HOUSTON (AP) - The U.S. Government Accountability Office wants the Army to re-evaluate its $3 billion contract award to the Oshkosh Corp.
Two companies that lost in bidding on the contract, BAE Systems and Navistar Inc., protested after Oshkosh won the contract in August.
The companies, in part, questioned whether Oshkosh could make the vehicles at the price it quoted.
The GAO Monday upheld the companies protests, saying the Army's evaluation of the companies' bids was flawed.
Military truck production under a previous contract provided as many as 10,000 jobs at the BAE Systems plant in Sealy and surrounding suppliers.
The British company had produced more than 50,000 2.5-ton and 5-ton utility trucks for the Army at the Sealy
plant over the past 17 years.
