Today, Blue Origin filed a protest with the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) regarding NASA’s HLS Option A decision. Attached is a redacted copy of the protest 


Additionally, here is a statement from Blue Origin: 


“NASA has executed a flawed acquisition for the Human Landing System program and moved the goalposts at the last minute. In NASA’s own words, it has made a ‘high risk’ selection. Their decision eliminates opportunities for competition, significantly narrows the supply base, and not only delays, but also endangers America’s return to the Moon. Because of that, we’ve filed a protest with the GAO.”
