ERAPSCO Allowed to Participate at US Navy Production Sonobuoy Bid Process


Reading time ( words)

The United States Navy has taken corrective action to reopen the competitive range regarding Solicitation No. N00010-19-R-002 for the GFY19-23 AN/SSQ-125A (Q-125A) production sonobuoy and include ERAPSCO in that competitive range. This allows ERAPSCO— a joint venture between Sparton DeLeon Springs LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sparton Corp., and Undersea Sensor Systems Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ultra Electronics Holdings plc—to again participate in the bid process.

On July 9, 2018, Sparton filed a bid protest by ERAPSCO with the United States Government Accountability Office (GAO) and requested that the GAO restore ERAPSCO’s ability to participate in the bid process. As a result of the Navy’s decision to restore ERAPSCO’s ability to participate in the bid process, on September 4, 2018 the GAO dismissed the protest.
