Harris Corp. to Compete for Billions in Radio Orders Thanks to Rep. Slaughter’s Work

Congresswoman Louise M. Slaughter (D-NY) today welcomed news that Rochester-based manufacturer Harris Corp. is competing for up to $7 billion in radio orders thanks to her work changing Army procurement rules. The Army’s request for proposal for a next-generation radio utilizes the “Slaughter Acquisition Rule” which prohibits no-bid contracts and ensures that companies like those in Rochester can compete for federal contracts in the open marketplace. Before Slaughter stepped-in to end the practice, no-bid contracts awarded by the Army had prevented Rochester businesses from even being considered for billions of dollars in federal work. “Rochester is leading the country in using high-tech manufacturing to keep our country safe while creating good-paying jobs,” said Rep. Slaughter. “Today’s announcement is the result of years of work in which I successfully pushed the Army to end no-bid contracts and allow Rochester businesses to compete for work in the open market. Businesses know that the best way to deliver innovative products at the best price is to promote market competition, which is why I pushed the Army to introduce real competition into the procurement process.” The Army’s request for proposal is for a universal variant of the Joint Tactical Radio System’s Manpack radio, with a total expected budget of between $5-7 billion. Congresswoman Slaughter led the successful effort to open-up the competition for the next-generation of Army radios, allowing Harris Corp to win a $3.8 billion contract for the Rifleman variant earlier this year. These efforts have been part of Slaughter’s years-long fight to ensure a fair and open military procurement process that has helped save thousands of jobs in Rochester. Because of Slaughter’s effort to end no-bid contracts, Harris Corp. announced in July that they would bring more than 100 new jobs to Rochester. -- Originally aired August 14, 2015 on YNN
