ROCKVILLE, MD--(Marketwire - March 15, 2011) -  Lisa Kazor, president and CEO of Savantage Solutions, released the following statement today after GAO's decision to sustain the protest filed against U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) controversial TASC contract award:

"We are encouraged by GAO's decision to sustain the protest filed relating to TASC. GAO's reported corrective recommendations are in lock-step with what my colleagues and I presented to Members of Congress, DHS officials and OMB over the last two years. As DHS officials meet internally to determine their next steps and way forward, as a committed small business federal contractor and taxpayer, I hope and trust that DHS officials will now explore a more innovative, precise and cost-effective approach to their goal of improving financial management across the Department."
