    Effect of FMTV stoppage

    It is illegal to bid below costs but that is not to say that they can't do it because their cost structure is lower than the incumbent BAE -- especially with the unused manufacturing space they have. This is typical in that a losing firm (and BAE desparately needed this win) identifies some issue with the process. Usually less than a 50% chance of getting them to rebid and if that happens there is no saying that OSK won't win it again. It takes an awful lot to be barred from bidding, much more than low balling a bid. Whoever commented that knows nothing about the defense sector
