JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania defense contractor plans to file a formal protest in an attempt to prevent the loss of its longest-held contract.

The Tribune-Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/21z4JWc ) Concurrent Technologies Corp. filed its protest Thursday with the U.S. Government Accountability Office, which will have 100 days to review.

CTC Marketing Director Mary Bevan says the protest is centered on the Johnston-based company’s $99 million contract through the Navy Metalworking Center, which it had held for 29 years before being awarded to another company.

The U.S. Government Accountability Office will rule on the protest because it serves as third-party arbitrator for disputes regarding federal government contract bids and awards.

Bevan says CTC cannot release any further details of their protest at this time.
