What GAO Found:
Most of the 18 selected Department of Defense (DOD) major automated information system (MAIS) programs that GAO reviewed had experienced changes in their planned cost and schedule estimates and half of the programs had met their technical performance targets. Specifically, 16 programs experienced changes in their cost estimates ranging from a 39 percent decrease ($1.47 billion) to a 469 percent increase ($1.63 billion). The average cost increase was $457.2 million among the 11 programs reporting an increase. Fourteen programs experienced schedule delays, which ranged from 2 months to over 13 years. Finally, half of the MAIS programs fully met all of their technical performance targets. Of the remaining nine programs, 4 four had partially met their target because each was still conducting tests. The other five programs were in the early stages of system development and had not begun testing.

CRAssociates, Inc., of Newington, Virginia, protests the terms of request for proposals (RFP) No. VA263-17-R-0013, issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs for community-based outpatient clinic services in Williston and Dickinson, North Dakota. The protester contends that the solicitation improperly fails to require an evaluation of price realism; specifically, the firm contends that the agency is required to include in the solicitation the provision at Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) § 52.222-46, Evaluation of Compensation for Professional Employees, to assess the realism of offerors’ prices.
We deny the protest.
