Northrop files to dismiss Boeing tanker protest

WASHINGTON, March 26 (Reuters) - Northrop Grumman Corp (NOC.N) on Wednesday said it had filed a motion asking the Government Accountability Office to dismiss parts of a Boeing Co (BA.N) protest against the Air Force’s decision to award Northrop a $35 billion refueling aircraft contract.

“Basically we argue that much of what Boeing complains about was contained in the KC-X request for proposals and should have been questioned, and even perhaps protested, before the submittal of Boeing’s final bid,” said Northrop spokesman Randy Belote. (Reporting by Andrea Shalal-Esa)
