AllWorld Language Consultants, Inc. (ALC) protests the award of a contract to Conduit Language Specialists under invitation for bids (IFB) No. DEA-06-B-0001, issued by the Department of Justice, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), to acquire language-related services, including monitoring, interpretation, translation and transcription services for DEA's San Francisco field office. ALC maintains the agency should have rejected Conduit's bid because it included unrealistically low prices and overtime rates calculated in a manner that was inconsistent with the terms of the IFB.
We deny the protest.
