FBI opens software procurement to fair and open competition
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has withdrawn a sole source award for probabilistic genotyping software, and will instead conduct the acquisition using competitive FAR procedures. Cybergenetics greatly appreciates the bipartisan efforts of Pennsylvania Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey, and Congressmen Mike Doyle and Tim Murphy, in achieving this outcome. Cybergenetics had sent a letter to the FBI, explaining the capabilities of TrueAllele Casework for accurately resolving DNA mixtures. Senator Toomey met with Drs. Mark Perlin and Ria David of Cybergenetics in Pittsburgh on May 15, and personally gave them the good news about the FBI’s fair and open competition.
