EDS protests award of DTS contract

Electronic Data Systems Corp. filed a protest with the General Accounting Office last week against award of the $263.7 million Defense Travel Systems contract to TRW Inc.

An EDS spokesman said the company believes it could provide the Defense Departmemt with better service at a lower overall cost.

DTS will replace an antiquated paper-based travel voucher process, which can take 25 steps to complete, with an integrated computer-based system that handles tasks ranging from pre-travel arrangements to trip authorization to payment— all without paper forms.
