ABSTRACT
The article reports on the motion filed by Northrop Grumman Corp. in response to Boeing Co.'s protest over losing on a $40 billion air tanker contract for the U.S. Air Force. Boeing emphasizes that the winning proposal from Northrop exceeds size requirements issued in the request for proposal and that their proposal was better on key performance parameters. Northrop, who won the contract, claimed that the issues being raised now were known before final proposals were submitted.
