MOSA Technology Solutions LLC’s Successful Protest Filed with ODRA


Bass, Berry & Sims filed a protest with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Office of Dispute Resolution for Acquisition (ODRA) on behalf of MOSA Technology Solutions LLC, a biometric authentication solutions provider based in Florida.

MOSA Technology Solutions, LLC provides biometric solutions. The Company offers mobile digital forensic, identity management system integration, mobile handheld devices, web design, and conference representation services.

The protest argued that the FAA improperly awarded a contract for fingerprint scanners based on a miscalculated evaluation of the awardee’s proposed pricing, specifically a warranty option that could not reasonably be satisfied. ODRA agreed the methodology used by the awardee was insufficient and sustained the protest. With the awardee’s miscalculations taken into account, MOSA’s proposal became the lowest-priced comparatively. Accordingly, the agency was directed to make award to MOSA.

Bass, Berry & Sims advised with a team including Todd R. Overman (Picture) and Sylvia Yi.
