Taft Withstands Protest of the US Air Force’s $41 Million Contract With Fury Solutions

In a decision announced on May 25, 2023, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims dismissed Thalin LLC’s protest of the US Air Force’s award of a $41 million contract to Fury Solutions LLC to provide office administrative services for the Phillips Research Site at Kirkland AFB, New Mexico. 

Thalin alleged that the Air Force conducted flawed staffing approach and past performance evaluations, and that the Source Selection Authority’s trade-off analysis was unreasonable.  The court disagreed, finding the Air Force reasonably reviewed proposals and determined its award decision based on a best-value tradeoff.  The court’s opinion detailing Judge David A. Tapp’s reasoning, is currently under seal.

“Fury Solutions is, and has been, ready to provide these important services to the Air Force. So, we are very pleased with the outcome of this case and Judge Tapp’s decision,” said Suzanne Sumner, Taft partner and co-chair of the Government Contracts Practice Group.

The Taft team representing Fury Solutions included Sumner as well as Barbara Duncombe, Government Contracts Practice Group co-chair and partner; Erin Davis, partner; Brandon Dobyns, of counsel; Stephen Darby, associate; and Christina Heidecker, paralegal.
