According to the Government Accountability Office (GAO):


Protests were filed by Viant, Inc., B-400443.2, and PRG-Schultz USA, Inc., B-400443.2 challenging the award by CMS of contracts under the RAC program. The RAC program provides for the award of four regional contracts to detect and recover Medicare overpayments and also to identify underpayments.

The 100-day due-dates for these protests under the Competition in Contracting Act were February 9 and February 11, 2009, respectively. Viant and PRG each withdrew its protest, and by letters today and the GAO closed the files for each protest without further action.


No further information is available at this time.
