Charter Environmental, Inc. protests the proposed award of a contract to ECI Northeast, LLC, under invitation for bids (IFB) No NEAT-05-190, issued by the Forest Service, Department of Agriculture, for restoration of the Ore Hill Mine Site in New Hampshire. Charter argues that ECI Northeast's bid should have been rejected as nonresponsive, and that ECI Northeast does not meet the IFB's definitive responsibility criteria and is thus ineligible for award.
We sustain the protest in part and deny it in part.
