2. Key Facts
- On August 24, 2007, five indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) contracts were awards on the basis of full and open competition to Blackwater Lodge, Lockheed Martin Integrated systems, Northrop Grumman/TASC, Raytheon Technical Services, and ARINC Engineering Services.

The solicitation for these ID/IQ contracts included three sample task orders. Sample tasks were (1) develop high resolution short-wave infrared cameras for surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft, (2) provide intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance support in the Trans-Sahara region of Africa, and (3) train Afghan Border Police to perform functions necessary to deny the flow of illegal persons, drugs, and weapons across borders.
Task order requests for proposals (TORP) 150 is for mentoring and training the Ministry of the Interior and Afghan National Police and TORP 166 is for facility maintenance and logistics support for the Afghan National Police Development Program, by the Department of the Army under multiple ID/IQ contracts to provide program and operations support for the Department of Defense Counter Narcoterrorism Technology Program Office.
- DynCorp, which does not hold an ID/IQ contract with the Counter Narcoterrorism Technology Program Office, protests that TORPS 150 and 166 are outside the scope of the underlying ID/IQ contracts because the request services are unrelated to counter-narcoterrorism.
The protest is SUSTAINED.
In sum, the Comptroller General finds that the TORPS for training and associated facilities and logistics support for the Ministry of the Interior and Afghan National Police are outside the scope of the ID/IQ contracts to support world-wide counter-narcoterrorism operations.
