Department of State--Costs
B-295352.5: Aug 18, 2005
- Full Report:
The Department of State (DOS) requests that our Office provide a recommendation as to whether an enhanced attorney fee rate should be paid in connection with a claim filed with the agency by Inter-Con Security Systems, Inc., for reimbursement of its costs of pursuing a bid protest and defending a request for reconsideration.
Request that Comptroller General recommend reimbursement of attorneys' fees at a rate higher than the statutory cap of $150 per hour based on increase in cost of living is granted where protester's claim filed with agency presented a reasonable basis for the adjustment.
