Propper International, Inc. protests the award of a contract to Tennier Industries, Inc. under request for proposals (RFP) No. SPO100-04-R-0151, issued by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), Defense Supply Center Philadelphia (DSCP), for all-purpose environmental camouflage system (APECS) parkas and trousers. The protester primarily contends that the past performance evaluation and source selection determination were unreasonable. The protester asserts that the agency's attempts to find past performance references for the firm's previous work were insufficient. The protester also contends that given its previous experience manufacturing and participating in the development of the APECS items, commendations it received for those efforts during part of the RFP's rating period, and its lower price, its proposal should have been considered the best value for award.
We deny the protest.
