 FOIA Post (2004): Full Court Review Sought in McDonnell Douglas Unit Price Case
The case stems from a June 1998 contract entered into between the Air Force and McDonnell Douglas for maintenance of certain KC-10 and KDC-10 aircraft, which are used for aerial refueling of other military aircraft.
Instead, it focused on and completely rejected the Air Force's judgment that McDonnell Douglas was not likely to suffer competitive harm from disclosure of the option prices where price would be only one of many factors used to evaluate any possible future bid.
Regarding the CLINs that McDonnell Douglas contended were made up primarily of vendor costs, McDonnell Douglas argued that its competitors probably obtained "the same or nearly the same" quotes from the same vendors and that disclosure of these CLINs therefore would allow them to calculate its "Vendor Pricing Factor."
