Americom Government Services, Inc. protests the exclusion of its proposal from the competitive range under request for proposals (RFP) No. DCA500-03-R-0001, issued by the Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization (DITCO) for the acquisition of a space segment for the Alaskan National Airspace System Interfacility Communications System (ANICS), a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) backbone communications system consisting of satellite earth stations, transmission channels, and services for communications in Alaska and Seattle, Washington. Americom contends that one of the proposal alternatives that it offered easily could have been made fully compliant, and was improperly excluded from the competitive range on the basis of technical noncompliance.
We deny the protest.
