B-299600.2: Sep 18, 2007
Takota Corporation requests that we recommend that it be reimbursed the costs of filing and pursuing its protest, including attorneys' fees, in connection with its protest of invitation for bids (IFB) No. HSCG83-06-B-3WF381, issued by the Department of Homeland Security, United States Coast Guard (the Coast Guard) for replacement pier services at the Coast Guard's Little Creek Station, in Norfolk, Virginia. In its protest, Takota challenged the agency's decision to cancel the initial solicitation instead of making award to Takota which had submitted the lowest bid. In addition, Takota challenged the Coast Guard's award of a contract to Jessico, Inc., at a higher price for the identical or substantially similar work without giving Takota an opportunity to compete.
We deny the protest.
