MCLEAN, Va. – (January 17, 2016) – On January 14, 2016, a federal court granted AAR Airlift Group, Inc.’s (“AAR”) Motion to Dismiss DynCorp International LLC’s (“DI”) complaint, and granted DI leave to file an amended complaint. DI is disappointed that the Court did not allow discovery or conduct a hearing prior to ruling on the motion. DI disagrees with the Court’s decision and is considering all legal options.
This decision is unrelated to the ongoing federal investigation being conducted by the U.S. Department of State’s Inspector General into potential Procurement Integrity Act violations by AAR related to the U.S. Department of State’s Worldwide Aviation Support Services (“WASS”) program.
The federal investigation was initiated after a whistleblower, a former AAR employee, provided unsolicited first-hand information alleging that AAR obtained and used DI’s trade secrets and other confidential and proprietary information to bid against DI in the competition for the WASS contract.
The Court’s decision is also unrelated to and has no bearing on the ongoing WASS procurement selection process. On October 13, 2015, DI was reinstated into the competition for the WASS Program by the U.S. Department of State and DI’s work on the current WASS contract has been extended until October 2016 by the U.S. Department of State.
