Contact Information


On Monday, December 7th, our TEAMS-Next Safety transition hit a speedbump as we learned a protest was filed. While that is not welcome news, we recognize protests are an important provision of government procurement process and will support MDA and/or the GAO as they perform additional assessment work.

This protest limits our government interaction and ability to continue our transition activities. However, we will continue to work on work on internal phase-in and long-lead activities to reduce transition risk.

We’ll continue to post updates as we have more information.
