AMC-LEVEL PROTEST PROGRAM (AUG 2012)
If you have complaints about this procurement, it is preferable that you first attempt to resolve those concerns with the responsible Contracting Officer.
However, you can also protest to Headquarters, AMC. The HQ, AMC-Level Protest Program is intended to encourage interested parties to seek resolution of their concerns within AMC as an Alternative Dispute Resolution forum, rather than filing a protest with the General Accounting Office (GAO) or other external forum.

The AMC protest decision goal is to resolve protests within 20 working days from filing. To be timely, protests must be filed within the periods specified in FAR 33.103. Send protests (other than protests to the Contracting Officer) to:
Headquarters U.S. Army Materiel Command
Office of Command Counsel-Deputy Command Counsel 4400 Martin Road
Redstone Arsenal, AL 35898-5000
Phone: (256) 450-8165
